The Newport-Mesa Unified School District's efforts to renovate its aging facilities took a giant step from concept to reality with the hiring of five architectural firms. The companies -- selected in late November -- have their work cut out for them, as they will share the design on the 28 schools designated for improvements. Only one company will be assigned to each school, however, said Mike Fine, the district's assistant superintendent. The improvements will be funded by Measure A, a $110-million bond passed in June 2000.

At Tuesday's Costa Mesa City Council meeting, it looks like the process of bringing competition into the picture will begin as the council is expected to give the required six-month notice to employees whose jobs may be outsourced.
