New clocks, back-up power planned for G-L

Bids to develop Requests for Proposals (RFP) for companies to bid on clocks and their installation and development of back-up power are being prepared for the Glen Lake Community Schools.

The School Board during a special meeting Monday agreed to hire Nealis Engineering of Traverse City to prepare RFPs for both projects.

Specifications for the school-wide clock projects will cost the district $13,900. An additional $4,900 will be paid to prepare specifications for a generator system for back-up power.

In other building/facilities action the board approved a bid from Michigan Mechanical North of Suttons Bay for the purchase and installation of a new roof top walk-in cooler and walk-in freezer for the food service department.

Installation of the walk-in cooler, plus removal and proper disposal of the older unit — including reclamation of refrigerant — will cost $5,296.

Installation of the new freezer, including disposal and refrigerant reclamation, will cost $7,938 for a total of just over $13,200 for the entire kitchen project.

In other business during the threehour special meeting the board:

• Approved the process and procedure for the annual evaluation of Superintendent Sander Scott. Board members will individually evaluate Scott and will come together in closed session June 15 to discuss them before issuing a consensus opinion, board President Fran Seymour said.

• Agreed to support Jason Tank and Jim Carpenter for the Traverse Bay Area Intermediate Board of Education.

• Approved its meeting schedule for the coming year. The board will continue to meet the second Monday of each month at 7 p.m. in the high school media center September through May and at 6 p.m. in June, July and August.
