Multiple proposals set for Dist. U-46 board vote

By Seth Hancock
  The Board of Education in School District U-46 is set to vote on $3.7 million in expenditure proposals as well as a curriculum proposal at its upcoming meeting on Monday, Jan. 25.
  The items were presented at the Jan. 11 meeting which was the first in-person meeting since shutdowns began last March.
  Included are three domestic water replacement projects with Northwest Contractors, Inc. costing $2.7 million combined from the operations and maintenance as well as life safety funds. Additionally, the district expects $50,000 to come from a state grant.
  The projects are to take place at Streamwood’s Ridge Circle ($1 million), Elgin’s Hillcrest ($885,000) and Elgin’s Ron D. O’Neal ($744,000) elementary schools.
  “The pipes have corroded over time, and have been repaired multiple times, restricting flow,” all three proposals state. “Instead of continuing to make costly temporary repairs, a replacement plan involving the installation of copper water lines is recommended.”
  A paint removal project as part of the third phase at Streamwood High School has a price tag of $430,000 (operations and maintenance fund) with Celtic Environmental, Inc. The district has been in the process of painting the school’s three floors.
  With RVK, Inc., the district is asking for $328,105 (education fund) for a five-year contract renewal with its employee retirement plan investment advisor.
  For an asbestos abatement project at Elgin High School, U-46 is asking for $162,300 (operations and maintenance fund) for High Efficiency Professional Abatement, Inc.
  A contract renewal with Riverside Insights will cost $52,470 (education fund) for screening of second through sixth graders with the Cognitive Abilities Test, used to identify gifted students.
  An insulation project at Bartlett’s Liberty Elementary School is proposed costing $26,492 (operations and maintenance fund) with USA Insulation.
  Additionally, a curriculum resource proposal was presented seeking Spanish resources to provide psychology and world geography electives to dual language high school students next year. The cost for the resources is estimated at $91,966.
