HARTINGTON — Hartington-Newcastle School Board members have been crunching numbers and debating costs on a new Vo-Ag building for several months.
That debate carried into Monday night’s special School Board meeting.
What should have been a routine meeting to accept a bid, turned out to be 55 minutes of looking through proposals with a fine tooth comb, and searching for possible discrepancies and savings.
“We’re torn, obviously these bids came in a lot higher than we wanted,” Board President Jason Dendinger said upon entering the Board Room.
“Normally, the building committee comes in with a recommendation for the full board, but we are torn because of the cost of this.”
After nearly an hour of discussion on the lone item at Monday’s special meeting agenda, Ian Lange finally made a motion to table the issue so they could get more costs concerning unexpected fire safety expenses.
