Board, builder to iron out school reno plans
By Suzanne Werre
With the goal of absolutely sticking to the $2 million or less sticker price of a new addition to the school, the Underwood School Board members are planning a meeting with the construction manager hired to work on the project this Monday to iron out the plans.
"Basically it’s one person from the management company said one thing – we had a differing numbers that came back -- and the last ones that came back were higher than the original ones, so we’re trying to wade through that," said Underwood School Supt. Brandt Dick.
The board is insisting that the construction company stick with the $2 million or less dollar amount that was originally agreed upon, so some parts of the plan may have to be changed, and those things still need to be worked out.
"That’s the direction that the board gave again, so we’re going to get together and get that clarified and go from there," added Supt. Dick.
At the board’s most recent regular meeting, Supt. Dick also noted that the school has already been notified that it will be getting some donations that will help cut the school’s costs.
