The Kingsland School Board met in special session October 2 at 6 p.m., with all members present (Doug Plaehn, Ann Oeltjen, Deb Larson, Tiffany Mundfrom, Jackie Horsman, Heather Betts, and Interim Superintendent James Hecimovich). The only item on the agenda was the Facilities Plan.
A motion was made by Mundfrom, and seconded by Horsman to direct the administration to collaborate with architects Rego & Youngquist/Knutson Construction, and Baird (financial advisors) to develop facility plans with financing options to include IAQ upgrades and final abatements. The motion carried unanimously, six to zero.
Plan A will be presented to voters in May 2018. Should Plan A fail to pass, the board will use its authority, without voter approval, to implement Plan B. Plan A is the addition of a single court gymnasium with stage and bleachers. It will also include IAQ upgrades and final abatement. The Wykoff facility and property would be offered to the City of Wykoff for $1. The District would lease the Wykoff gymnasium and three classrooms for at least two years. Plan B is the multipurpose addition with the IAQ upgrades and abatement. Both plans would include the abatement of the Wykoff facility and sale.
The meeting adjourned at 6:04 p.m. The next regular board meeting will be Monday, October 16, at 6:30 p.m. in the choir room. As always, the public is welcome.
