Honolulu - The state construction contract for work on improvements to the softball field at Lahainaluna High School was awarded to Paul's Electrical Contracting LLC in the amount of $797,700.
Work on the site will begin soon.
"I am thankful that Governor Neil Abercrombie has released these monies, and that a contract for this important work was awarded," said Rep. Angus McKelvey (District 10

"It is imperative that our students have the best facilities to continue to be successful and safe in not only academics but athletics as well."
Money for this project was secured by West Maui lawmakers during the 2010 legislative session in the state budget for Fiscal Year 2010-11.
