BEAVER TOWNSHIP- The South Range Local school board Thursday night authorized Treasurer Jim Phillips to advertise for bids for construction of board offices.
According to school Superintendent Dennis Dunham, the board is continuing to seek information to help determine how to proceed with new board offices. He said there is no bid package ready at this time and administrators do not know what the dollar amount might be for the project.
"Right now we're just getting as much information so that we can make the best choice," he said, noting that the board will not be obligated to accept any bids it receives.
The board offices are currently located in the old farmhouse on the district's sports complex property. The house sits where the Eastgate Regional Council of Governments and Ohio Department of Transportation District 4 will be installing an entrance to align with the K-12 Campus entrance to accommodate turning lanes on state route 46.
The board is conducting a feasibility study to determine whether to add onto the K-12 campus, relocate the farmhouse next to the campus or purchase property near the campus.
"Ultimately [the decision] comes down to the dollar amount, and that is what we are trying to determine right now," Dunham said.
