Mayor Battle Talks Dollars Outlining Plan To Pay For Old High Schools
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) — Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle says millions of dollars from capital improvements funds will be directed to pay for Grissom and Johnson High School buildings.
Huntsville City Schools is selling both campuses, and plans to build new schools for Grissom and Johnson in the next few years.
The city plans to turn the Johnson High School campus into a public safety training facility while Grissom will serve as a recreation center, community theater, possibly a new library and a south police station.
“We have made education our top priority and yes, some capital improvement projects may be pushed back in order to pay for buying these buildings, but the benefits to the community will be felt for decades,” Mayor Battle told WHNT News 19.
