Who is supposed to pay for this "wonderful upgrade"?
17 years!!! Ridiculous!!!
I wonder who is gonna get a big % out all this deal.
They should star been a little more green..not all the teachers recycle, a lot of them smoke and the last May night in Locuts Grove Elementary was a mess for the earth, they miss a lot of garbage cans.
They should use that money in better educational programs, more computers and to hire really well prepared teachers.

I thought the same thing.....the savings do not justify the cost of the labor. Perhaps they need to hire an accountant and not Johnson Controls. Just sayin'........not cost effective and as a tax payer in Red Lion I do not support this plan although I do like green, I like to keep my own "green" also!

Why don't they spend some money to remove the fcking asbestos ceiling in the pool. Now that would be greening the area!

Just make sure you are wearing a breathing mask while swimming (especially the backstroke)...

Spend $7.6 MM to save $29,412 a year.

I'd love to see a business try to get financing for that deal. "Yes, Mr. Banker, we're confident that if you loan us $7.6 million, we can pay you back .3% interest on that investment."

They could have those very same savings by making a 4/100 of a pecent cut across the $79,000,000 annual budget. That or cut one teachers aid.

____ing idiots!!! It's no wonder Education is broke and broken.

And the SUBSTANTIAL COMISSION goes for ________. I guess somebody in RLD will be having a nice pay vacation or a new car and/or some down payment.
Perhaps an increase in the "Educational" Tours for Teachers to Argentina and Spain for two weeks with everything included, thanks to our taxes.

Wow! That's great. You can save $29,000 a year and only have to plunk down $7,600,000. That's using your head. How about this Red Lion. You give me $7,600,000 and I'll give you $100,000 a year for 17 years. That's $1,700,000, or more than 3 times the $500,000 with your current plan. How can you go wrong?

Is the school board meeting open to the public or is it a closed meeting? If it is an open meeting I think this town needs to start speaking up!

Let Terry Robinson and director of buildings and grounds Jeffrey Bryan pay for it.

When is will it be enough?

The worst part is that they'll be saying they need to build new schools in 10 years!!

Just remember the primary elections are today. Why not take a stand and vote for some changes to school board member line up. There are some new faces out there that could really put some new perspectives on things. Just think about the 4 million they voted to spend on new fields and astroturf! 2 of the 3 district 3 reps voted no to part of the deal that isn't necessary.
