The cost of two new scoreboards for the high school could cost as much as $23,150, said Little Falls Activities Director Aaron Sinclair at Monday night’s School Board meeting. But, with donations, it may not cost the district a cent.

With two new scoreboards installed at the high school, the old scoreboards would go to the middle school. The middle school scoreboards would be relocated to Lindbergh Elementary School and its old scoreboard would be moved to Community Services.

Sinclair said Aim Electronics submitted a bid to the district for two Daktronics scoreboards for $8,500. They would include a console controller, a border stripe, a trumpet horn and the team name. Each would be six feet high by 10 feet wide and six inches deep. In addition, a Daktronics six player statistic panel would cost $7,990, two wireless controllers would cost $800, two sponsor panels would cost $890, two control console carrying cases would be $300 and to relocate four old scoreboards would cost another $1,200. Estimated freight on the merchandise would be $580 and installation another $1,200.

The new scoreboards have a five-year warranty.

As this was presented for the Boards information only, no vote was taken Monday night.
