Floyd County Schools called meeting on Monday: On Monday, the Armuchee area Local School Governance Team members will host a community meeting in the auditorium at Armuchee High School at 6 p.m. Superintendent Dr. Jeff Wilson will present information regarding the construction of the new gym. After that presentation, (probably around 6:45 p.m.), the board will have a Called Board meeting in the school’s media center to approve the ‘guaranteed maximum price’ — to use the money from the bonds — to begin construction of the gym. Board members will be in attendance for the community meeting but are not part of the presentation (they will just be in the audience until their meeting begins).
