CALL TO ORDER

 

Dr. Burriss called the meeting to order at 3:40 p.m. for the purpose of receiving bids for the T. L. Hanna and Midway classroom addition projects.

 

 

BIDS FOR THE T. L. HANNA AND MIDWAY CLASSROOM ADDITIONS

 

Mrs. Bagley stated that the bids were received on April 17th, and she reported that they were over the projected estimated cost.  She then recognized Mr. Brooks to present the bids.

 

Mr. Brooks distributed the Bid Tabulation sheet for the T. L. Hanna classroom addition and reported that the low bidder was Matrix Construction, which came in at $3,633,000.  He stated that the original estimate received in January 2006 was approximately $2.6 million.  A more recent estimate received was approximately $3.3 million.  We did bid three alternates:  (1) delete two classrooms, (2) delete practice field, and (3) add new student parking lot.

 

Next, Mr. Brooks distributed the Bid Tabulation sheet for the Midway classroom addition and reported that the low bidder was Lazer Construction, which came in at $3,810,200.  He stated that the original estimate received in January 2006 was $2.8 million.  A more recent estimate received was approximately $3.1 million.  We bid two alternates:  (1) delete two classrooms and (2) add new visitor parking lot.

 

Following some discussion, the Administration recommended that the Board approve the bid for T. L. Hanna, accepting Alternate #2 (deduct of $138,233), for a total of $3,494,767 and the bid for Midway, accepting Alternate #1 (deduct of $160,800, for a total of $3,649,400.  Because the bids were over the projected estimated cost, the Administration also recommended that we use $1.8 million over the amount originally projected to be used from the referendum bonds to complete both projects.

 

 

After further discussion, no decision was made and it was recommended to re-bid the two projects.

 

 

ADJOURNMENT

 

There being no further business, Mr. Anderson made a motion the Board adjourn.  Mr. Bradshaw seconded the motion, which carried unanimously.
