Wamego’s USD 320 Board of Education accepted a bid to repair the West Elementary playground.
At Monday’s meeting, Director of Operations Larry Hannan handed out the bid specification from four (4) bidders for the West Elementary Playground drainage project.
After discussing the different components of the bids, and suggestions by Bryan Padgham, a motion was made to accept the bid by Riley Construction in the amount of $41,549 after additions.
The motion passed by a vote of 5 to 1. Board member Amy Schwein left the meeting early.
In other business, the Board continued the facilities discussion with BBN Architects.
Superintendent Denise O’Dea held an administrators meeting earlier and submitted their suggestions to BBN.
BBN’s Carl Riblett went over the list of suggested improvements by priority.
The group took the new Pre-K Center, District Office/Special Ed Office, and Central Elementary Additions off the table.
At the last board meeting, a decision was made to move the District Office into the former Catholic Rectory and Special Ed Cooperative into the former education building on the Poplar Street Campus.
The revised list includes a new 4, 5 and 6 Center addition to the current Middle School building, remodeling and repairing gym and locker rooms at the High School, and remodeling and adding locker rooms, concessions, ADA improvements and Press Box remodeling to the Sports Complex.
A decision was made for the Board to study the new improvement list and dedicate the March meeting for discussion and possible decisions.
