AccuWeather sponsored by: Grant Money Available City Council School dedication continued from page 1 budgeted expectations, the dis- trict has been able to accomplish some other long-term deferred maintenance projects. This sum- mer, the heating and ventilation system at the John Clark Ele- mentary site in Rockville was overhauled to make significant improvements in the physical environment at the site. The sys- tem was aging and facing very serious operational issues but the ability to use resources from the budget savings in Phase I and II allowed the district to make these improvements. In Richmond, the ability to use construction resources al- lowed serious water service is- sues to be addressed this past summer. As the spring unfolded in 2011, some water leaks in the tunnel system at Richmond Ele- mentary School were discovered. During the process of examining the leaks, it became apparent that the best solution was to re- place the pipelines under the building. Greater investigation revealed that there were much more serious, and potentially very damaging, problems existed in the water lines, but applica- tion of some of the budget sav- ings allowed the district to com- pletely replace all the lines and put the building in good condi- tion well into the future. continued from page 1 or equipment. They cannot be saved for a long period of time nor can they be applied to nor- mal operating expenses. In the long-term, however, district use of the construction resources to resolve deferred maintenance items will allow regular budget- ary resources to be used for is- sues beyond deferred mainte- nance. As construction is completed on the DEF building, the school board will begin to review the items of deferred maintenance to determine what projects to un- dertake and what issues to ad- dress. The final costs for the main construction project will be much more clear and the extent of resource to apply toward other projects will be more definite. COMIN6SOON At Cold Spring Elementary, the heating, ventilation and air ;R$70, Hake Throwing Snow Fun Again! conditioning system is run by a series of heat pumps across the building. Because the building is about 20 years old, the system is beginning to experience failures within the pumps and system. A major project to replace a series of heat pumps occurred this summer to keep the building op- erational and prevent heat fail- ure this coming winter. Again, the resources of the construction budget were applied to address a long-term deferred maintenance project. School Board members and district staff have compiled a list of other deferred maintenance projects to address with other construction funds. As with the examples at the elementary lev- els, the projects on the list are is- sues the district will need to ad- dress in one manner or another in the next few years. With the construction project coming un- der budget, a number of these projects can be completed with the resources. This will allow the district to apply regular budget resources into other areas or ad- dress issues that could not other- wise be resolved. Construction funds are very tightly controlled by the state of Minnesota. Construction funds may only be applied toward capi- tal projects such as building, re- modeling, deferred maintenance ST 121 E 9 Ibs/ft torque Single stage SnowKing engine 21" clearing width Electric Start Power Price ......... $ 649.9S scheduling adoption of assess- ments for the "2010 Sewer Relin- ing" Project.
