GSL School Board accepts bid for parking lot project

A plan to finally repair the cavernous parking lot potholes at Glencoe-Silver Lake Junior-Senior High School and pave the gravel lot at Lakeside Elementary School won quick approval Monday night. It’s the financing piece of the plan that may present a bit more of a challenge next month.
The GSL School Board unanimously accepted Duininck Inc.’s bid of $965,768 for the project at the March 11 meeting. The engineer’s estimate for the project was $1.2 million. Duininck Inc. is located in Prinsburg, Minn. The company will repair the parking lot on the north side of the junior-senior high school and field house. It will also pave and stripe the gravel parking lot at Lakeside Elementary School in Silver Lake. The work is expected to begin just after the completion of the school year and be completed in time for the start of the 2019-2020 school year.
Duininck Inc. was one of six bidders for the project. Four of the six were below the engineer’s estimate. One bid was at the estimate, Michelle Sander, the district’s business manager, told the school board.
The school board also voted unanimously to schedule a public hearing on the financing plan for the parking lot plan. It will be held April 15, 6:30 p.m., in the district’s community room at 1621 16th Street E.
