Paauilo Elementary and Intermediate School to receive electrical upgrade

A project to provide Paauilo Elementary and Intermediate School with electrical upgrades will soon be underway. Paauilo Elementary and Intermediate School recently received funding from the Department of Education for electrical upgrades to the cafeteria and locker rooms.

“I am pleased that Paauilo Elementary and Intermediate School has received the funding for these upgrades,” said Senator Malama Solomon, who represents Senate District 4, encompassing Hilo, Hamakua, Kohala, Waimea, Waikoloa and Kona. “A school’s cafeteria and locker rooms see daily use — projects like this invest in our schools’ facilities, enabling us to provide our students with a safe learning environment where they can thrive.”

The project will cost about $24,000 and includes electrical upgrades and replacement of lights. The start dates of the construction work have yet to be determined.
