With a successful $38.1 million referendum, for a new facility, under their belt, the R-P School Board voted November 17 to move the initiative forward to the next stages. Nearly 30 packed into the high school biology room for the meeting, including notable faces from both sides of the referendum vote, incoming board members (who will take on their roles beginning in January), and district staff.

First up was review of the contract with ICS Consulting, Inc. for comprehensive project representation services. The 11-page document will put in place items to help facilitate projects related to the new school. The were some board questions related to limitations on liability within the contract, particularly regarding responsibility or acts of omission of consultants, contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, individuals, or entities producing design or work. Additional question was raised over ICS costs affiliated with the project. The board tabled the contract decision to allow the district to seek further clarification from the firm.

The board did choose to approve a proposal from Ehlers Investment Partners. The firm will be handling the investment of the new facility bonding dollars. Jack Fay, representing Ehlers Investment was on hand to introduce the firm and their proposed scope of work. Fay noted the firm’s three priorities for the project as safety of the assets, liquidity of the assets, and lastly, yield on investments.

The advisory agreement spells out work to be paid on a fee basis. A fee schedule was presented. Superintendent Chuck Ehler noted an appreciation for rates being set at an understandable level. Board member Angela Colbenson added her endorsement of the firm, having worked with them on a referendum while on the school board at another district.

Ehlers Investment Partners will work directly with the project manager. The firm of Kennedy & Graven has been approved by the board as bond counsel for the series 2015A bonds.

Along with the contracts, the board has approved a process format for the newly formed R-P Schools Design Team. It has been suggested by the architectural firm of ATS&R that the district limit the design team to approximately 24 members. The team will be comprised of district administration, teachers, students, district staff including janitorial and food service representatives, and eight community members. Thirteen people have currently ex .....
