LAKE TWP.  Lake Local Schools Superintendent Kevin Tobin gave the district's Board of Education a building project update during the May 20 meeting, stating it is nearing completion.

Tobin said that Phase 4, which includes the Market Avenue section of the middle/high school, should be complete by Aug. 1. He said that there will also be part of the high school that will be renovated during the summer.
