The Marion County Board of Education has already said the Marion County Area Technology Center will be it's next renovation project.

A committee including business and industry representatives, city, county and school officials has been formed to work toward financing the tech center renovation. However, Marcum suggested that the tech center may be a project that could be presented for possible federal funding.

President-Elect Barack Obama has proposed an economic stimulus package worth hundreds of millions of dollars, according to national news sources.

Marcum said much of the stimulus spending will focus on infrastructure, but there may also be opportunities for construction projects as well.
