Community helps school district clean up

BROSELEY, MO (KFVS) - The superintendent wants to thank Broseley community for pitching in to save the district money.

Twin Rivers R-10 School District Superintendent Mike Stevenson says people have donated time, effort, and equipment to voluntarily tear up, and clear out the foundation of the old high school.

Stevenson says they're doing it to save the district money in case voters approve an issue on the ballot that would allow the district to build a new middle school in that spot.

"We have a couple board members that were farmers and they had equipment and they said they thought they could get some more help, they just bring in some heavy equipment, prepare the lot, and clean it up so that if it is passed, we don't have to worry about that cost, that that won't have to be taken care of, the lot will already be prepped and ready to go for construction but then again if it doesn't pass at least its cleaned up," said Stevenson.

Stevenson says he doesn't know how much it would have cost to tear up the area, but says they haven't been able to afford it up to this point.
