At A Glance
The Elkins School Board Tuesday voted 4-1 to demolish the old gymnasium as part of the overall construction project after mulling the decision for the last few months. Superintendent Megan Witonski said renovating the old gym would cost about $475,000 to bring it up to code while demolition would cost about $28,000. The gym was built in the 1950s. School board member Laren Vaught cast the dissenting vote.
