BURGIN - Burgin Board of Education plans to accept bids on a new building project no earlier than Thanksgiving. Burgin Superintendent Richard Webb said Thursday that some of the parties involved may need more time and the bid letting could be after the holiday.
The base project to be bid will include a new heating and air conditioning system and the remodeling of restrooms. If more money is available, the board may add two or more classrooms and expand a couple of existing classrooms.
Webb said the project is estimated to cost $1.7 million.
Earlier parts of the project were done using money from the General Fund. Renovation of the gymnasium cost $75,000 and the board spent $15,000 on a new parking lot and the same amount on general remodeling. A bus garage near board offices is being built at a cost of about $25,000, Webb said.
