WILLIAMS - Work has begun to widen the Williams High School football field with the help of donations of time, materials, and manpower from area businessses.

Construction of a retaining wall with a four-foot tall fence is currently under way. The wall is being built 25 feet from the sidelines with a leach system installed behind the wall to drain water away from the field. The existing stands will be moved back.

L.P.'s Excavating has donated all of the excavation work, worth approximately $45,000. All block work will be donated as well, bringing the donated cost of the project to around $65,000.

During the May 25 regular meeting of the Williams Unified School District (WUSD) Governing Board, members approved an $11,000 district contribution to the project plus an additional $4,000 to cover possible cost overruns.
