OTTOVILLE, Ohio - The board of education has hired a Wapakoneta company to help build a $17 million school.
Peterson Construction will be paid $8.7 million as general contractors for a school to take shape along the west edge of this Putnam County village.
Superintendent Ken Amstutz said all are shooting for a May 1 groundbreaking.
The Ohio School Facilities commission is picking up most of the cost. Voters approved two bond issues to help pay for the rest of the project.
