Hamilton County Mayor Jim Coppinger says the county has enough cash to complete four of the school system's six recommended construction projects.
His recommendations for projects to be completed include:
• A replacement for Ganns Middle Valley Elementary
• An addition to Sale Creek Middle-High
• An addition to Nolan Elementary
• An addition to Wolftever Creek Elementary
That leaves out the much-anticipated replacement for the Chattanooga School for the Liberal Arts and a new middle school in the East Hamilton area.
Altogether, the mayor's four projects top $50 million in school construction costs. County Commission Chairman Fred Skillern said the body would likely vote on the projects at next week's meeting.
