Bids were sent out last month for the long-awaited drainage ditch improvement project and were broken into 2 sections. One for the drainage and another for the parking areas.
Superintendent Jason Sternberger told the school board at last week’s meeting that they received bids on the parking area but none for the drainage portion of the project. Sternberger said, “No one wants to bid on the drainage part because there is a large waterline in the same ditch. This has to be moved before placing drainage pipes on top of the waterlines.”
Sternberger told the board that they need to put the project on hold until he can talk with the town about options.
