The new building would contain four classrooms, which would include safe rooms as well.

These classrooms would be used for Band, Choir, Art, and Speech and Drama.

Roadwork on in Madill to be Completed

By Tina Firquain The Madill Record

Progress on South 5th Avenue has been slow, but the road is expected to be open by Aug. 4. Even though it is taking longer than expected, Interim City Manager James Fullingim said, “I’m very proud of the fact that our city employees have joined hands and have been united.” In total, there have been six Madill men that have worked on this project.

Two city street employees, two parks and cemetery employees, one firefighter, and one police officer. According to Fullingim and Doug Schneider of the street department, by using these city employees a project that would have cost approximately $160,000 has been cut in half. Fullingim wants the citizens of Madill to understand that this project saved the city money by not contracting it out, and because of this, Madill will have money to work on other projects
