Mercer, Wyoming seek funds for new schools


CHARLESTON (WVVA) - Two southern West Virginia county school systems are asking the School Building Authority for money.

Wyoming County met Monday with the board, asking for additional funds for a new Huff Consolidated Elementary School.

Executive Director Mark Manchin says that project is already funded, but adds the board is expected to let the project go out for bid to see how much money is actually needed for the building.

Mercer County is scheduled to meet with the board on Tuesday to request $8 million for a new elementary school that would consolidate Ceres and Brushfork schools to create a new Green Valley Elementary.

The board will make their funding decisions on April 22.
