The Somerville Board of Aldermen Thursday night agreed to borrow $2.6 million to renovate the Somerville High School auditorium, kitchen and cafeteria.
The bond will also pay for architectural and engineering services for the renovations.
The high school's auditorium and cafeteria were damaged in Hurricane Sandy, which hit Somerville in October of 2012.
The school has not been able to use the auditorium since then, according to The Piper, Somerville High School's student newspaper. Without a functioning kitchen, lunches have been prepared at the Winter Hill Community School and shipped to the high school every day, the newspaper said.
