Letter about R-P Referendum


Fri, Dec 7th, 2012
Posted in Peterson Letter to the Editor

To the Editor,

I am writing with regard to the direction of the Rushford and Peterson School District. It appears that the district is in need of some improvements to the buildings in Rushford and Peterson. From what I understand there have been suggestions made that the repairs needed are far too costly to sustain and the only option appears to be to build a new K-12 Facility over the next few years in Rushford. The cost could range $15 million now for a elem building and some where over 20 million for the K-12 building. Sorry if I don’t have that exactly correct.

From my point of view the building in Peterson offers two softball fields, a football field, tennis court, and a gymnasium. The building is a brick structure that was built in the 1950s with a fairly new roof. Somewhere I read that it would take 1.7 million dollars to repair this building. Personally I think we should get another estimate. I put in a furnace lately for around $4,000. We could put a new furnace in every room in the building for probably $60,000. I realize I am not a HVAC guy, but a little common sense has to come into play here. Even if the cost was around $200,000 I believe the community would probably come together to help out to save the school in Peterson. I would be willing to lead a task force to collect bids and look for local contractors and outside investors to complete that project.
