Chattooga County School Superintendent Jimmy Lenderman told AM 1180 on Friday that the county school system is seeking local contractors interested in bidding on the expansion project of Leroy Massey Elementary School.  The expansion is due to the consolidation of Summerville Elementary School with LMES.

A meeting will be held on Monday, February 6, 2012 at LMES at 10 AM.  Lenderman said interested contractors should come to the back of the school to the lunch room.  Also, the superintendent said that local companies interested in providing materials for the construction project could come to the meeting.

Lenderman said that current plans are to break ground in March and hopefully complete the project by August of this year.
