Locals may now rent out the Andalusia High School Center for Performing Arts.

The Andalusia City School Board OK’d the policy at its Monday evening board meeting.

Andalusia City Schools Superintendent Ted Watson said the fees are in-line with the fees to utilize LBWCC’s Solon and Martha Dixon Performing Arts Center.
