DACC to consider upgrades to Bremer Theater

DANVILLE — Danville Area Community College trustees on Tuesday will consider bids for various improvements to be made at the Bremer Theater.

The work includes upgrading the theater’s lighting and sound system and remote controls.

“It’s something that needs upgrading and replacing,” DACC President Alice Marie Jacobs said.

The lighting upgrade project consists of furnishing all materials, lighting components and labor necessary to install the new theater lighting. The base bid included the installation of new lighting on the sides of the stage, whereas the alternate bid included new lights in the overhead cove in front of the stage.

The trustees will consider the low base bid of $15,580 plus the alternate bid of $5,355 for a total of $20,935 from Glesco Electric of Urbana to upgrade the lighting in the Bremer Theater.

The sound system project consists of furnishing all materials, components and labor necessary to provide a complete and operational system.

The alternate bid would allow wireless remote access to the sound system.

The trustees will consider the low base bid of $27,853.43 plus the low alternate bid of $885 for a total of $28,738.43 from Conference Technologies of East Peoria to upgrade the Bremer Theater sound system and remote controls.

Both projects will be paid for with funds from the 2013 technology equipment bonds.

Also on Wednesday, the trustees will:

n Hear a report from liberal arts and library services.

n Hear a report on the Association of Community College Trustees’ Leadership Congress.

n Consider accepting the college’s annual audit report for Fiscal Year 2013 performed by CliftonLarsonAllen LLP. The report states the college is in sound financial condition.

n Consider the retirements of Diane Hall, coordinator of customized training in the Corporate and Community Education Division, and Gary Belt, coordinator of tractor trailer driver and public safety.

n Consider entering into a five-year lease agreement for a 2014 semi-tractor with Prairie/Archway International Trucks of Springfield/Champaign for $2,253 a month.
