The Marshalltown School Board is moving forward with renovations to the Roundhouse.

The board approved a construction bid of just under $8 million from an Ankeny contractor and work is expected to begin in November.

The plan includes an overhaul of the gym, new locker rooms, and the addition of a weight room.

The board also approved borrowing $10 million in bonds to pay for the project. It’ll be paid off with future sales tax revenue.

The project should be finished by December of 2014.
