North Vermillion rejects bids

CAYUGA, Ind. — The North Vermillion School Board has decided to reject bids for summer renovation projects at North Vermillion High and North Vermillion Elementary schools and to rebid the projects.

The low bid of $1.679 million from C.H. Garmong of Terre Haute was rejected for the high school along with all three bids for the elementary school. The board will proceed with another required 1028 hearing at 6 p.m. EDT April 8 in the superintendent’s office.

Gerard Skibinski of OMS Contractors of Indianapolis said the delay will result in the project still being under way when students return in August, but school officials felt they could work around it.

The board authorized proposals for upgrading the waste water treatment plan following OMS specifications. Proposals should be sent to Skibinski at OMS at 429 N. Pennsylvania St., Suite 403, Indianapolis.

Proposals for upgrading the district’s FM radio communication system also should be sent to Skibinski.

In other business, board members:

  • Approved a $1,000 salary increase for Dennis Naylor Jr. as a result of obtaining his waste water certification and a $4,000 increase for Mike Davis as a result of obtaining his advanced water certification.
  • Approved Brian Byrum, Marty Brown and Jeanne Swaney as the 2013 driver’s education instructors and Dwight George and Tiffany Crowder as the READ 3 remediation teacher and teacher assistant for this summer.
  • Heard a school safety and security presentation from Justin Fischer, high school assistant principal. He attended a two-day training session at the Hub Civic Center in Veedersburg.
  • Gave Superintendent Michael Turner permission to advertise several elementary positions: art, music and physical education. Turner would like the PE teacher to have a valid lifeguard license.
  • Will accept proposals for the annual corporation insurance request until 3:45 p.m. April 15.
  • Received a $2,500 donation from Monsanto with a matching amount to Vermillion County 4-H.

What’s next

The North Vermillion School Board will meet at 7:30 p.m. EDT April 15 at the North Vermillion Elementary School library.
