A multi-year plan is being considered to improve four of the county’s school campuses, the total price tag estimated at just over $10 million.“We will need to engage the County Commission at some point,” said Director of Schools Bobby Cox regarding the improvement plans that will include Bobby Ray Elementary, West Elementary, Eastside and Warren County Middle School.Cox revealed the detailed estimates to the Board of Education, noting it will be a monstrous undertaking and could be a strain financially since the county has other expenses.Taking the top spot as far as costs will be Warren County Middle School where there is an estimated $4.6 million in upgrades and improvements needed. The biggest ticket item there for im-provement is $1 million for HVAC replacement in the main building and another quarter million for adding an HVAC in the gym area. A roof replacement is needed in the main building and will cost around $700,000.
