The board determined the pest problem was awful. They have had this problem for 20 years but the School Principle was unaware of this. So they decided to Re-Award the contract to the same pest control company that allowed the infestation to exist?

The board discussed ways to combat an ongoing pest problem at Lenoir City High School's gym concession stand.

Mike Sims, supervisor of support services, said it's been a never-ending battle for 20 years

Principal Steve Millsaps said he has not heard any complaints.

"Hey, I've been out there, and I've seen roaches that big run by you," Johnson said, holding his index fingers about two inches apart. "That big they'd attack you, and mice are running around everywhere."

Sims said Frontier Pest Control treats the facilities every month.

After about 10 minutes of discussion, the board decided to award the bid to Frontier Pest Control and let Sims and Superintendent Jeanne Barker research the feasibility of storage alternatives.

Wonder if this will bring in more clients for Frontier since the LCSB could not enjoy their lunch for the little critters running around.

Once again we taxpayers are well represented.

Seems like justus chickens are the only ones interested in this, guys.

I guess this is how they award the contracts. I wonder if willie and nillie know about this?

The principal has not heard any complaints, because it's been going on for 20 years now and everyone is used to it.

DUH... But we've always done it like that!
