The Waterford Schools Board of Education voted Thursday, Aug. 4 to approve a $170,142 contract with VJM Design for partial roof replacements.
The projects will take place not only at Cooley Elementary School, but also at Waterford Mott High School over its auto shop and designated corridor areas.
VJM’s bid came in the lowest out of nine, with the second-lowest bid coming from Royal at $231,479 and the largest bid coming from LaDuke at $458,237.
According to Tom Wiseman, the school district’s assistant superintendent for business and human resources, the projects will start and be completed before the start of the 2011-12 school year.
The Cooley roof replacement will cost $43,870, while the Mott auto shop roof replacement will cost $41,629. Mott corridor roof replacements will cost $84,643.
This capital improvement project comes after the school board voted in June to approve a bid of $113,624 from Great Lakes Hotel Supply to replace kitchen counters and cabinets in six Waterford school buildings.
The schools involved in that project are Beaumont Elementary, Burt Elementary, Cooley Elementary, Houghton Elementary, Schoolcraft Elementary, and the Stepanski Early Childhood Center.
