I was wondering why the school district poured new concrete at Schwegler School within the past two weeks, only to have a backhoe come in on Aug. 8 and tear it all out? It sounds like a waste of our tax dollars.

"In an attempt to save money by not replacing an entire section of sidewalk, district employees made minor repairs to areas of sidewalk at Schwegler Elementary," said Tom Bracciano, USD 497's division director of operations and facilities planning.

"The repairs were not holding up, so we hired a private contractor to replace a large section of sidewalk."
