The project cost for Ozarks Technical Community College’s Republic Center has been approved by the OTC Board of Trustees.
The total project cost will be $7,295,000 for the center to be built on eight acres of land donated by the Bussey, Cox and Lipscomb families. The building will be named the Bussy-Cox-Lipscomb Hall.
OTC officials plan to break ground on the project in January and hope to open it for classes in August 2020.
The board also approved a bid to hire Rich Kramer Construction to build the facility.
