The installation of security gates lo shut the rest of the building off from the gym, kitchen, restroom area would cost $3,758 The hoard asked Supt. Stevens and junior high Principal John Fowler to investigate the cost of portable security gates
( racking Again
Fowler rejwirted the roof on the oldest part of the building is in bad shape. He had hoped it would not need attention of major proportions for at least a couple of years
The district maintenance men have been patching it as needed but it is cracking again Since the area is to have a false ceiling at the third floor level this creates a possible problem which will be inspected by Richard Riedel, district roofing consultant. Rerouting on the other portion of the existing building is finished except for flashings.
A report has been received from Riedel on the problems at Mentzer. He said the major problem should be turned over to the district attorney to determine legal responsibility of the varius contractors and architects.
He estimated it will cost $80.(100 to repair the roof. In addition, the deck will need repair and when a more thorough study is done even more work probably will be needed he said
Stevens reported he has received a letter from Duane Datisman informing the board he would like to resign as business manager for the district effective Jan. 17 to accept a similar position at Clinton
Stevens suggested the hoard go into executive session to discus the matter. Upon returning the hoard accepted the resignation subject to finding a suitable replacement
