Kingsland selects Knutson


Mon, May 2nd, 2016
Posted in Spring Valley Education

The Kingsland School Board met on April 26 for a special meeting. All members were present: Doug Plaehn, Deb Larson, Kristin Beck, Troy Asher, Gwen Howard and Ann Oeltjen, along with Superintendent John McDonald. Doug Plaehn called the meeting to order, and led the Pledge of Allegiance.

Plaehn then explained that the Facilities Committee had reviewed information from four companies interested in helping Kingsland investigate the three options outlined by the school board, regarding repairing and/or rebuilding facilities. Each of the four companies have been involved in area school projects. Plaehn said two of the four, ICS and Construction Consulting Partners, are really consulting firms, and the other two, Knutson Construction and Kraus Anderson, are construction firms. He said each of the firms gave about a 20-minute presentation, then, “We went back through and discussed what we liked about each one and what we didn’t like. Then we had each member rank them one through four, and Knutson was the top.”

A motion was made to move forward with Knutson Construction for the three charges identified by the school board, as recommended by the Facilities Committee. The motion carried by a unanimous vote. Plaehn said the Planning Phase will begin, and once the board decides upon a project, it will enter the Design Phase. The next Facilities Committee will be Wednesday, May 4 at 7 p.m., and the next regular school board meeting will be Monday, May 16 at 6 p.m.
