COLLEGE STATION- The board approved the guaranteed maximum price for the repair of the A&M Consolidated High School baseball and softball fields.

For more than 10 years, the two fields have been significant maintenance problems for the district, due to the fact that they cannot drain water after a rain event.

The repairs include removing 12 inches of existing clay soil, grading the field so it will drain properly, rebuilding the field with the proper root zone and infield mix, adding a new irrigation system and drainage piping, installing a new outfield fence and solid sod, and installing new bases.

The guaranteed maximum price for the package is $1,039,597, and the total project budget is $1,162,968 and will be paid for from savings already realized from previous 2009 and 2013 bond projects.
