Didn't they say when we voted on this 'This is a really good time to build, prices are down.....'. The other thing I don't get is 'reducing the size of storage areas'- Have you seen the current classrooms, they have 10lbs worth in a 5lb bag. What's the over-under on a February ground breaking, things keep getting pushed back don't they..... One more thing, I hope these bids are inflation/fuel price protected or another over-ride vote will be needed; or a cheap non-functional school will be built.

I didn't really like the idea of a new school, but the town voted for it, so LET'S NOT WASTE A DOLLAR TO SAVE A PENNY. Build it right, do not cut corners, we are going to have the bills for at least 30 years; and hopefully the school for alot longer.
