Alpine School District will be transferring about $1.5 million from it revenues and fund balances to its capital reserve fund to pay for land purchases and new construction.
Jack McKelvy, assistant superintendent of business, said the district has used up more than 99 percent of its 1990-91 capital outlay fund and would like to purchase several pieces of land in Lindon, Pleasant Grove and Orem. The total cost of the land would be about $824,000.The district also plans to construct portable classrooms for the 1991-92 school year. For these classrooms to be in place by fall, construction must begin soon. Cost of the classrooms is estimated to be about $700,000. Expenditure for the buildings may fall in to the 1991-92 budget, depending on when contractors bill the district. Bids for the buildings have already gone out.
The increase in appropriations was approved by the Alpine School Board Tuesday night. The appropriations will not result in any tax increase.
