JOHNSTON, Iowa — The Johnston School Board is meeting Monday night to select a bid for its new high school project.

The board is expected to select Stahl Construction of Des Moines. The company came in with the lowest bid at $74,380,000.

However, that’s still $2 million over budget. The district is scaling back parts of the project to make it more affordable, including holding off on some football stadium upgrades.

The board meets at 7:00 p.m. at the Administrative Resource Center.
