FDL HS Fieldhouse Gym Floor Failing

It will cost over $300,000 to replace a failing gym floor at the Fond du Lac High School Fieldhouse. District Superintendent Jim Sebert says they have had issues with the floor since shortly after it was originally installed at the high school, but now parts of it are failing. He says they have soft spots, seams that are weak, the subfloor is failing, and spots that have been repaired are failing again. He says they have a couple of options for how they will finance the replacement of the floor. He says they could use the money from the District’s Fund Balance as a one time expense. He says they could also pay for it over two budget cycles. The School Board held a workshop about the Fieldhouse Floor and toured the Fieldhouse Monday night.
