At last Friday’s emergency meeting of the Morris School Board, it was discussed how fortunate the district was that work crews were on hand because they had been given the go-ahead to work on the high school renovation project through the winter. So, when one of the school’s boilers gave out last week, the crews offered their help to install the boiler. Morris Schools Superintendent Rick Lahn noted the difficulties the school would have had if the workers had not already been there.
Lahn said the crews are easily doing two weeks of work in a single weekend and were willing to drop everything to take care of this latest emergency. The new boiler is costing the district approximately $350,000 including installation, but is being paid for from contingency funds of the renovation project.
