(LaPorte, IN) - A mountain of wood chips is outside LaPorte High School. Superintendent Mark Francesconi says they’re brought in every year and taken to all of the schools to keep the landscaping looking nice.
He says the wood chips are dumped in the parking lot of the high school then distributed out because of the high school being centrally located. Francesconi says the landscaping work is contracted out. Truckloads from the huge wood chip pile were being taken to schools
