INFORMATION ON FIRE ALARM UPGRADES

Our school district applied for extra money from SFC for fire alarm upgrades and we were granted $400,000 to upgrade the fire alarms.

Motion: Jeff Kirkbride moved to approve Communication Systems as a

sole source provider to upgrade the fire alarm systems in seven school district buildings with extra funding approved by the School Facilities Commission.

Second: Todd Fornstrom seconded the motion.

Vote: Motion carried.

Tom Hirsig commended Troy Decker for staying on top of things such as this.

 

 

REALLOCATION OF FUNDING FOR SFC

Ken Daraie from SFC came to the Committee of the Whole meeting and talked to the board about various projects. Mr. Smith, Mr. Decker and Mrs. Simineo met and will have information to the Rec Board by the August meeting. Mrs. Simineo reported that it is clear from the discussion at the COW meeting that it may be awhile before construction starts for PBEL. Mr. Daraie will be sending out another list of priorities next June. Mrs. Simineo talked to Leonard Anderson about the city managing the RV Park for a longer period of time, at least until PBEL is on a priority list. They are very eager to do this. Tom Hirsig made the suggestion that tenants that move to the park sign an agreement that the property is owned by the school district and they would be expected to move when PBEL is put on a priority list.

Motion: Ty Lerwick moved to approve the extension of the current agreement with the Town of Pine Bluffs to manage the RV Park until the new elementary has been prioritized by the School Facilities Commission for funding. At that time, the district will renegotiate an appropriate date for all mobile homes to be removed.

Second: Jeff Kirkbride seconded the motion.

Vote: Motion carried.
