Members of the MSD of North Posey approved a proposal that will restructure the water system at the junior high and high school. George Link of VPS Architecture and Gene Wilderman of Wilderman and Associates presented a plan last Monday, November 12, to board members.
The duo explained various options and felt the best recommendation includes boring a line directly underneath the school. They stated it will cause less disruption and avoids conflicts with utility lines located in back of the school. They also felt confident with their choice to bore under the school and did not have any concerns that would be problematic for the building.
The board approved the base bid and the P-5 alternate that will add up to a combined cost of $60,256.
The board may entertain the idea of accepting sponsorships at their December meeting. They decided to table a request by Virgil Ferguson to accept a sponsorship from the Army Reserves for as much as $1,000. The funds would go towards the high school athletic fund. Board members would like more information regarding the sponsorship and may decide to create a policy outlining rules for other businesses or entities who desire sponsorship opportunities.
Superintendent Dr. Todd Camp informed the board he had received quotes from Action Pest Control and Moore Pest Control as directed. He will need time to compare information from both quotes before making a formal recommendation to the board.
In other business, the board approved the following:
•A facility use request by Larry Williams of the Old Timer Basketball Players to use the North Elementary gym on various dates from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m.
•Tracy Stroud and Heath Howington’s request to use the high school gym in November and December for the youth basketball program.
•Mariann Robinson’s request to use the South Terrace Elementary School (STES) gym on various dates from 6 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
•Terri Waugaman’s request to use the high school auditorium on December 10 and 11 for the North Elementary School (NES) Christmas program.
•A request by Steve Kavanaugh to purchase Knox boxes for the fire and police departments at each school building. The boxes will contain keys that will enable emergency responders to gain access to the buildings in the event of an emergency.
•The appointment of Barbara Heldt, Linda Reising and Jennifer Werry to the Poseyville Carnegie Public Library Board.
•Donna Nash’s request to retire as a teacher from NES after 21.5 years of service. Her retirement will be effective December 31.

•Leah Stormant’s request to resign as the junior high girls’ basketball coach, effective immediately. Instead, she will become the freshmen girls’ basketball coach.

•Scott Strieter’s request to hire Ryan Schmitt as a volunteer boys’ basketball coach and Brad Miller as a volunteer wrestling coach.
