LA JOYA – A $2.4 million project that La Joya Independent School District approved late last year, is finally going to the next phase. The school district approved engineering, material and civil services and an architect last week so construction of the building could proceed.
La Joya ISD partnered with the Federal Emergency Management Agency after being awarded funds to build a community safe room in December 2012.
The project cost is paid mostly by the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program. La Joya ISD will be paying 25 percent of the cost.
