WILLIAMS, Ariz. - The Williams Unified School District has started revamping its bleachers and locker room area. The school hopes to complete the renovation by the time school starts.

The new bleachers will be black and orange to reflect the school colors. In addition, the new bleacher design calls for the elimination of the crow's nest. Instead, the scorekeeper and announcer will sit at a table on the gym floor between two sections of bleachers.

The bleachers cost $75,000, which came from the district's Forest Fees. The district receives money from the U.S. Forest Service because the national forest land within the district is tax exempt. A portion of the cost will also come from the Chamber's Harlem Ambassadors fundraising basketball game on May 4, although the amount is uncertain.

Other improvements included replacing the existing gang showers with five individual shower stalls in each locker room. In addition, the girls locker room will get an additional toilet for a total of three toilets and the boys locker room will get an additional toilet and urinal for a total of two each. Finally, officials hope to replace the wire mesh and plaster ceilings in both locker rooms.

District officials hope to complete the locker room construction for less than $100,000, which comes from the district's capital budget.
