The Board of Selectmen recently approved spending $51,769 to replace cubbies and cabinets in the Adams Middle School band and storage rooms.
The board took the action after hearing from Cliff Gurnham, director of Operations and Facilities for the Guilford schools, report that the "existing ones are 20 years old and are worn out."
After hearing Gurnham's report, the selectmen voted unanimously to spend the money, using the state contract from Insalco Corporation.
Gurnham said the work will be done before the new school year, likely the second or third week of August.
The authorization to spend the money was previously approved at the town's 2014 budget referendum. There was a total of $135,000 dedicated to the project, which besides the cubbies and cabinets in the band and storage rooms, also includes similar work done in other parts of the school.
The band and storage areas are only the first phase of the project, said Gurnham.
