School Board to keep status quo


November 21, 2019

The Moose Lake School Board did not take any decisive action regarding the one-acre piece of property near the old school building.

At the special meeting of the board on November 12, Superintendent Robert Indihar asked the board if they wanted to consider putting the forested property up for sale. The council bounced around the idea of seeing if the City would be interested in the property and discussed what other potential uses they might have it. For the time being, they decided not to put it up for sale.

Superintendent Indihar informed the board there is currently $97,000 in the capital fund available for use. The board reviewed a list of wants and needs for the school that was created during the bond referendum and discussed if there were any projects they wanted to tackle this year.

Board Member Kim Bohnsack proposed designating a minimum balance for the capital fund to ensure they would have funds available in the event of a disaster or emergency. She also suggested they get updated estimates for the listed items because the original estimates had purposefully come in high to make sure they stayed under budget.

One of the big ticket items on the list, a parking lot next to the track, could be done using abatement bonds, said Chairperson Steven Blondo. The board does not need public approval in order to do an abatement bond.

Bohnsack proposed doing a survey amongst school staff and students to see what they would like to happen with the school.

At the conclusion of the meeting, the board decided to seek new estimates on getting goal posts for the field which the football team currently uses for practice.
