Heaven knows “port-a-potty” beats “behind-a-bush”, but fans at Ruidoso Middle School sports events have been longing for something better since the new RMS campus was completed in 2012. Relief may finally be at hand.
At its meeting last week, the Ruidoso school board was shown an architect’s model of a proper and permanent comfort station, the first draft of the structural plan that officials hope to see in real life on the RMS field as early as next summer in time for next year’s football season.
"We don't have any set timetable yet," cautioned school Supt. George Bickert Tuesday. He noted that when Cape Architects of Ruidoso completes the final drawings they will still have to be approved by the state Public School Facilities Authority and the Construction Industries Division. Then the district will solicit bids.
But the location has been determined.
