Vote planned for various District U-46 expenses

By Seth Hancock
  The Board of Education in School District U-46 is prepared to vote on $3.3 million in expenditure items at its upcoming meeting on Monday, Jan. 23.
  The items, presented on Jan. 9, included various fire alarm replacement projects, all to be paid for via the operations and maintenance fund.
  Included is $820,000 with Broadway Electric, Inc. for fire alarm replacement at Bartlett’s Prairieview ($440,000) and Elgin’s Lords Park ($380,000) elementary schools, $557,016 with Low Voltage Solutions for replacements at Streamwood’s Ridge Circle ($308,000) and Elgin’s Ronald D. O’Neal ($267,016) elementary schools and $298,960 with iWire Technologies, LLC for replacement at the Illinois Park Center for Early Learning in Elgin.
  The proposals state life expectancy of the systems are 10 years while the current ones were installed between 1992 and 1999 at the schools receiving replacements.
  “The fire alarm system is a crucial health, life, and safety system and it is essential that this critical building system operates without disruption,” the proposals state.
  The district will also seek $255,000 (operations and maintenance fund) with Berglund Construction Company for another project at Illinois Park, a foundation waterproofing and regrading project.
  Other operations and maintenance fund projects being sought include $722,000 with Bear Construction Company for bathroom renovations at Elgin’s Channing Elementary School and Kimball Middle School, $298,000 with F.E. Moran, Inc. for cooling tower replacement at the Educational Services Center and $98,531 with Commercial Kitchen Equipment and Supplies USA for a cooler/freezer replacement at Elgin’s Abbott Middle School.
  Costing $120,750 from the education fund, the district is seeking a three-year renewal with Panorama Education to conduct an “Equity and Inclusion survey” on students.
  Two additional proposals would use federal tax dollars, $94,356 with Action Fence Contractors, Inc. and $57,222 with Alphaprime Communications.
  An Action Fence contract, to be paid for by a Department of Justice’s Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) grant, will provide fencing at Bartlett High School, South Elgin’s Clinton Elementary School and Hoffman Estates Timber Trails Elementary School.
  “U-46 has been looking at fencing these areas over several years, and through the COPS grant, we can fund these projects as pricing has risen significantly due to the pandemic,” the proposal states.
  The Alphaprime proposal, to be paid through federal covid bailout funds, would purchase 204 two-way radios.
