The school board will hold a special meeting tonight to select a firm to oversee $240 million in school repairs and maintenance. The money was provided by a bond issue approved by voters in November.
School board members will choose a firm from a short list of six companies. The list was produced by a review panel that includes a school board member, an architectural consultant and three members of a Citizens Oversight Committee established to ensure that the money is well spent.
The six companies being considered are: JRP, Turner, PMA, Luster, Vanir and PCMIII. The school district could not provide further details about the companies.
Steve Cary, assistant superintendent for business, said the selection of a project manager must occur before the district issues bonds and begins design work for the school sites.
The meeting is 7:30 p.m. in the district board room.
