School Board meets, selects HVAC team

Posted on Tuesday, October 22, 2013 at 2:20 pm

After a brief deliberation, the Bowling Green R-I school district Board of Education decided on an HVAC specialist to handle upcoming capital improvements during their regular meeting Monday evening.

The meeting was called to order at 5:30 p.m. by board president Joe Klott. All members were present for roll call.

Board members voted unanimously to approve the consent agenda, which included minutes from the previous meeting, fund transfers (zero), bills for payment, and changes in personnel.

Superintendent Darin Powell gave the financial summary as of the end of the month of September.

With no discussion in the public information forum, the floor was opened to old business. Powell stated he is awaiting results from the contractor on the requested changes to the weight room addition.

In new business, the November work session (Nov. 11) and board meeting (Nov. 18) were both announced. The board then voted unanimously to declare surplus property from the library.

Also in new business, the board discussed their various options for selection for the HVAC project. Companies of discussion were FSG, who offered little in continued supervision or guaranteed savings; Trane, who offered a savings guarantee; and CTS, which promised innovation as well as savings. After a few minutes of brain storming, Cindy Browning made the motion to go with CTS for the project. Ryan Bailey seconded, and the motion was unanimously approved.

There was no discussion during the reports portion of the meeting, although Powell noted the MSBA regional meeting was to be held Tuesday evening at the Mark Twain school. Later, he mentioned the need to update capital improvement project plans.

With nothing else on the open meeting agenda, the board adjourned to executive session for both a staff and student issue at 6:52 p.m.
