School Board Proceeds with Summer Maintenance Projects

March 6, 2013

 03/07/13 The Plymouth School Board approved beginning the bid process for summer maintenance projects. David Schoof, director of maintenance, presented a list of potential projects to the Board during a regular meeting on March 5. The total estimated cost of the projects totals $476,700; however, $200,000 of the cost will be paid for through a refunding bond.

At an earlier meeting this year, the Board financed bonds and the measure allowed for the monies to be made available.  Schoof explained that some of the project costs are for materials only, including LED exterior lighting and water line repairs. He further explained that an asbestos abatement at Jefferson Elementary is for areas in mechanical areas and not in any student area. He said the areas are managed and for the most part, encapsulated.

The largest number of improvement projects will be for Plymouth High School. Schoof said the building was the largest in the county. Some of the needed replacements for doors are for original frames that were installed in 1974, according to Schoof.
