USD 430 moves forward on bond projects

South Brown County USD 430 is moving forward with planning and approving bids for projects being financed by a $7 million bond issue approved by patrons last November.  

At their March 9 meeting, the USD 430 Board of Education approved a bid from Higgins Glazing Systems for the replacement of windows and doors in the district's three schools for a total of $1.2 million.  

Previously, bids were approved for a new roof at the elementary school, new HVAC systems at the three schools and exterior restoration of the buildings.  

The remaining projects that need to be bid out include--security systems, concrete replacement and outside handrails.  

With the increase in cost that is being seen across the country, USD 430 Superintendent Jason Cline said he pleased how things have been going so far and is confident they will be able to finish all the projects that were part of the bond issue.  

Work has begun on the installation of the new HVAC systems at the Horton Elementary School and Everest Middle School, with work expected to be completed by the end of May. Work will then shift to the high school in June.

Cline said all bond projects are anticipated to be designed, bid, and completed by this fall.
