Milford School Board ready for next step, building project all ‘Go”

The Milford (MAPS #124) School District can't say 'Thanks enough' to the district's people who said 'Yes' to a building project. It's a project that'll create a new school and build new memories to support the past.

The MAPS #124 school board is opening new bids this week and ready to move forward with its building project.

Board President Mary Ronna said "we're confident building will start this Spring and the people, who supported this project, will find this a real plus. We feel strongly this is the direction to move toward."

Original bids came in too high. The school board took a step back, re-evaluated, worked with the architect and (Thursday) will look at new bids. Mrs. Ronna said 'it's not uncommon for Capital Building projects like this to force you to pause and take another look.

Despite any street-talk and other comments from naysayers, the project has not gone away and the scope of the project has not been short-changed.

Superintendent Dale Hastings explains the bid opening will be followed with a special meeting of the school board (next month) and the real work comes soon after that.
