EACS board OKs bid for new elevators

– Installing two new elevators at two New Haven schools will cost East Allen County Schools more than $173,000, officials said.

EACS board members voted Tuesday to approve a contract with Hamilton Hunter Builders Inc. to install elevators at New Haven High School and New Haven Middle School.

The $173,815 will be paid for by the district’s recently approved general obligation bond. General obligation bonds are repaid with public tax dollars.

The elevator project is the first of several projects that will be paid for through the general obligation bond, officials said.

Both elevators will be installed before school begins in the fall, said Kirby Stahly, assistant superintendent of administrative services.

The district has students with schedules that require them to attend classes on both floors, Stahly said.

“At New Haven Middle School, we have been babying that elevator for more than a year,” he said.

The district received only one bid for the project, leaving some board members concerned.

Board Vice President Chris Baker said he hopes future projects will garner more than a single bid.

The board voted 6-1 to approve the contact with board member Arden Hoffman voting against it.
