One down, 399 to go

The first of 400 piers for the new Gatesville Elementary School was poured late last week. Construction is expected to last into next summer and be completed in time for the 2015-2016 school year. A $17.9 million bond issue approved by voters last year, plus $1 million from reserves, is paying for the project.
