Hamilton is getting 86-million dollars for repairs and upgrades to local schools.
Local MPP Ted McMeekin has announced an additional 32-million dollars in the two year project to repair things like roofs, update HVAC units and modernize electrical and plumbing systems.
Recently, the Hamilton Public School Board listed 21 schools as being in poor condition.
Board chair Todd White says most of the schools on the list were built in the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s.
The money is part of 2.7-billion dollars being spent on 49-hundred schools provincewide.
