Main dishes honest to goodness italian cracked Concrete to be fixed school Board okays payment by Kay Stephens staff writer Altoona area school Board authorized payment of a Bill on monday night that it had refused to pay last month because it was unsatisfied with the work. Although the Board is no More satisfied with the work this month than it was last month the action comes after school administrators and some Board members held a meeting with parties involved. The situation involves a Concrete floor in the basement of the Altoona area High school that was poured by Leonard s. Fiore inc.

Once that water evaporated the slabs settled More into the ground allowing the new Concrete to crack. According to or.
