LOL yep! And he gave a ridiculous answer for the cost overrun.

"Rumor Has It" that the supt sits around on his computer all day!

Let's all come up with Rumor Has It stories and see how many he wants to put on there.

The board voted to cover any over runs before the bond was voted on to keep the tax payers tax increase minimal. That is a fact and you can go read the minutes.

We are talking about it already being overbudget, and it's in the early stages. It's going to go way more than the $7.6 million originally planned for, just wait and see.

Did you read and understand what the supt wrote? Let me try to explain again. The original projections were $7.6 million. The board decided to set the bond at $7 million and pay for the $.6 million from savings (fund balance). The Supt said so far, nothing has come in substantially more than originally projected. Therefore, it's still projected to cost $7.6 million. No over runs over what was originally projected. Therefore , they anticipate taking about $600,000 out of savings to cover this, just as they planned all along. Just as they told the voters before the election.
the way i see it

Two months ago show bids were on track and GC was to negotiate down some contracts. Resident you should attend board meetings. There is no way to know if it will be over budget. Ground work is not even finished. That said asbestos work might cause problems but their should be contingency money in the overall bid

How do you know that "it's going to go well over $7.6 million" when those in charge of the project don't even know that?

Yep, it would be a disappointment if someone who really knows what's going on took the time to correct the 'misunderstandings'(i.e.lies and exaggerations) that are posted regularly.

Oh let me see, talk to a couple of the board members, and then let's see, oh yeah the construction reps. Ask any of them where this is headed. Rumor has it though that I will be told in here that its not true. Keep in mind, that's what rumor has it will tell you.

I think you should contact one of the oversight committee members. Each board member nominated a person for a position. They are to oversee the money spent in some manner and will be transparent. You can get there names from the school.

I think he meant there was no way to know for sure now if it will be over budget.

So are they basing this idea in facts. That is, can they point to specific bids that are over budget? If so, please tell us specifics. Or is it just a pessimistic attitude or negative outlook that they are just assuming it is going to go over budget because in their past experience, things like this always go over budget?

Is this an example of the education one can get at Bonham ISD? LMAO Be "quite"? "Meens" ROTFLMAO Everyone should be fired and the school shut down if it is indicative of the level of education received in this district.
confused by spelling

please do not be offended, did you mean to type "quiet," as in: making little or no noise? Or, did you really intend on "quite," as in: to the utmost or most absolute extent or degree; absolutely; completely: it's quite out of the question.
Just curious.
