4.1. Technology Update

Mr. Mezger presented a written report to the Board.

 

4.2. Facility Update

The Board discussed the recent Special meeting on the possible gym addition.

Public comment was received from Al and Julie Klecan regarding the easement they have on the east drive of the HS.  After much consideration, the Klecan's do not want to see the east drive closed with an attachment to a new addition east of the HS.  Superintendent Meyerle presented an alternative concept of utilizing the current north lot for a new addition with a walkway from what is currently Room B.  Such an addition at that location would not see a new main entrance to the school, and only two locker rooms vs. four.  Some modifications could be made to the existing Principal and Administrative Assistant offices to enhance security.

Superintendent Meyerle noted that parking is a real issue.  Currently on game nights about 30 cars park in the east lot and 40 in the north lot.  If the east lot was expanded, surfaced and marked, approximately 55 cars could be parked there.  The parking around the fitness center could be utilized for parking near an east entrance to a new addition.  Superintendent Meyerle would also like to explore having parking on the west side of the HS along Perry street, near a main entrance to a new addition.  Parking could also be available on the street by the Catholic Church should the school be able to partner with the church on game nights.  Not including parking on Garfield street south of the school, Superintendent Meyerle estimates the parking spaces could increase from 70 to 105.

There is also the possibility of rocking a lot where the JH has currently practiced football for more parking.

Public comment was also received from Joann Scheele and Charles Barber.

 

4.3. Review, consider, and take all necessary action to adopt a resolution (1) selecting the design-build contract delivery system, and (2) authorizing the Superintendent or his designee to publish notice in a newspaper of general circulation in the District that it is seeking a Performance Criteria Developer.

Passed with a motion by Dean Engelman and a second by Paul Kostal.
