Tuesday, 09 July 2013 06:40

Last night the Glasgow Board of Education met in regular session at the new central office building. The meeting was about as short and sweet as they get, but a big decision was made.

 

After months of debate, discussion, and haggling with companies, the Glasgow Board of Education made a decision on who will build their new Band Tower. The two companies with bids were Botts Construction for $23,201 and Coates Construction for $25,206. After a motion made by Wade Stone, the board voted 3 to 2 to accept the bid from Botts Construction.

The three “yes” votes were made by Elaine Richardson, Amelia Kiser, and Wade Stone. “No” votes were by Leigh and Barrett Lessenberry.

 

The board also approved the 2013 Kentucky School Board Association recommended policies and procedures updates, which includes the raising of the High School drop-out age from 16 to 18.

 

The board will meet again in regular session at their next meeting on August 12th at 6 pm, in the Central Office.
