District U46 approves variety of expense items


By Seth Hancock
  The Board of Education in School District U-46 unanimously approved, of $3.7 million in expenditure items at its meeting on Monday, Jan. 25 which was virtual due to COVID-19 regulations.
  Three domestic water replacement projects were approved, all to be done by Northwest Contractors, Inc. The total combined cost is $2.7 million to be paid through the operations and maintenance and life safety funds as well as a $50,000 state grant.
  The projects will 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 proposals state that pipe corrosion has “been repaired multiple times,” and “instead of continuing to make costly temporary repairs, a replacement plan involving the installation of copper water lines is recommended.”
  As part of the third phase of a repainting project at Streamwood High School, the district will spend $430,000 (operations and maintenance fund) with Celtic Environmental, Inc. for paint removal.
  With RVK, Inc., the district will spend $328,105 (education fund) for a five-year contract renewal with its employee retirement plan investment advisor. The advisor will provide “selection and monitoring of investment funds with better performance and lower fees,” “ongoing investment advisory services” and “assistance with advising the retirement committee,” according to the proposal.
  As part of a domestic water piping replacement at Elgin High School, U-46 will spend $162,300 (operations and maintenance fund) with High Efficiency Professional Abatement, Inc. to remove asbestos-containing materials.
  U-46 will spend $52,470 (education fund) with Riverside Insights to provide the Cognitive Abilities Test, used to identify gifted students, to second through sixth graders as well as $26,492 (operations and maintenance fund) with USA Insulation for an insulation project at Bartlett’s Liberty Elementary School.
  The board also unanimously approved $8.8 million in itemized bills.
