THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Coleman Board To Consider Renovation Options Oct. 8
Issue Date: October 4, 2018
Several significant decisions are to be made by Coleman School Board at a special 6 p.m. meeting on Monday, Oct. 8. The board was told previously by Superintendent Doug Polomis that at this meeting they will get their first official look at options for the school renovation projects to be financed by the bonds approved in last spring's referendum.
They also may be asked to make some hard choices about those options after getting information on estimated costs of various proposed segments being considered for the upgrades to both school buildings and be asked to set priorities based on funds available in relation to need.
Polomis said the board will be asked to make some decisions about the scope of the project, and may need to choose some components to put off until more money becomes available.
There is to be a rendering of what the front of the high school may look like. Board members are being asked consider options for color schemes, furniture, kitchen equipment, flooring materials, and more, including which parts of the project to go forward with and which to put on hold. There is a furniture contract proposal to consider.
The board may make some if its choices at that meeting, or they could decide to spend some time considering options and make their choices at their next regular meeting, which will be 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 22, following the 6:30 p.m. annual meeting and budget hearing that night.
Other business scheduled for the Oct. 8 meeting includes approving the proposed 2018-2019 budget for publication in advance of the budget hearing and annual meeting, possible hirings and resignations, and accepting a number of donations.
