New greenhouse for Manteca High, replacement for Sierra football turf

Sierra High in the coming months will have an upgraded football field playing surface while Manteca High will have a replacement greenhouse built.

Low bids for the two projects are expected to be awarded when the Manteca Unified School District board meets Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the district office, 2271 West Louise Avenue.

CT Brayton & Son of Escalon was the low bidder for both projects. The $381,260 greenhouse is being funded with residual Manteca Redevelopment Agency funds and Career Technical Education Incentive Grant money.

The $175,870 turf replacement at Sierra High is being paid for with general fund revenue set aside for maintenance.

Also on the agenda are:

The swearing in of trustees for four-year terms: Kathy Howe, Area 2; Marie Freitas, Area 4; Cathy Pope-Gotschall, Area 5; and Stephen Schluer, Area 6.

The election of board president, vice president, and clerk.

Accepting work on the $634,147 district-wide security camera update project as complete. The upgrades were funded with Measure G bond money.

Accepting mitigation agreements for community facilities districts for three new residential subdivisions — North Main Commons, the Cerri Subdivision, and the Denali Subdivision.
