Franklin Regional school board members will discuss next year's proposed capital spending plan at their Monday, Feb. 5, meeting.

Facilities director Jim Heck will present the proposed $1.99 million plan, which focuses primarily on replacement purchases recommended during the course of the district-wide facilities study the district underwent in 2016. Those purchases would account for $1.89 million of the total.

Proposed maintenance work would include restoration of the softball infield, painting at the middle school and high school and road/sidewalk repair at all district schools.

Heck will also ask school board members for an additional $7,800 to fund additional work by the district's traffic consultant, as a result of the Murrysville Planning Commission's review of the traffic-impact study for the Sloan Elementary campus project .

Tonight's meeting is strictly discussion. The board will vote on this and other items on the agenda at its Feb. 19 meeting.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
