Kingsland School Board: Work group cuts $1.2 million from school proposal


Fri, May 4th, 2007
Posted in Education

Kingsland Board President Mitch Lentz termed Wednesday's meeting of the board work group as productive. Board members and administration were successful in trimming over one million dollars from the bids for the new construction. The original Bond Referendum that was approved by taxpayers was for 11.8 million dollars. The first bids came in at 12.4 million or 10 percent higher.

The reductions that the work group spent time on were looking at what could be pulled out of the plans to meet the 11.8 million dollars. Items that were discussed included the softball and baseball fields. There were plans to move one of the softball diamonds to the High School as well as relocating the baseball diamond. If the cuts are approved, those plans will not happen and there will be no baseball diamond at the High School. Mitch Lentz is hoping that the public can see the value of making these projects happen by volunteering.

The plumbing and heating system was reduced from a four pipe system to the current two pipe system. The four pipe system would have made a more efficient changeover from heating to cooling, but will remain at two pipes.

Another area where changes were proposed but were withdrawn was in the library. Rather than replace the millwork it will remain as it currently is.

The Kingsland School Board will also be hosting an official groundbreaking either the end of May or first of June. The public will be invited to attend as well as students before the last day of school.

At the end of today's work session, 1.2 million dollars will be reduced from the project.

The changes that were recommended by the work group will be acted on Monday night during a special meeting of the school board.
