Elkins, W.Va. – The Randolph County Board of Education discussed a resolution to fund outdoor bleachers at various area sports fields.
Tuesday night, the board discussed and approved the resolution entering an agreement with Country Roads, LLC, to enter into a purchase agreement with Citizens Bank for a ten-year period, for up to one $1,140,000 in funding to construct the outdoor bleacher facilities.
