PORTVILLE — Portville Central School board members met Tuesday night, with a building and grounds committee providing an update on the new seating for the auditorium.
Last month, Superintendent Tom Simon reported a decision was close to being finalized for the new seats. Clothed in maroon fabric, they will be 2 inches taller and 4 inches wider than the current seats.
Including the addition of the balcony, the number of seats would total 674, with some seats being between 20 and 22 inches wide. Seating 19 inches wide would be primarily for children and be placed against the walls of the auditorium.
If a decision is made to not include that seating, the number of seats available would total 649. Also included will be handicap seating in both the front and back of the auditorium.
