STR gets green light for Dist. 111's traffic signal
Board gives OK to complete bidding process
MINOOKA — The Minooka Community High School Board approved STR Partners to complete the bidding of the signal work on U.S. 6 in front of South Campus, according to District 111 Business Manager Todd Drafall.
Money to complete the project comes out of the district’s capital project budget, and the cost is based on an agreement with STR from 2000.
Total cost for STR for their architectural services on the job was $34,900, with $22,000 of the work already completed.
“(The signal) is one of the last major pieces of work to be completed at South Campus,” Drafall said.
The board also approved a contract with Precision Control Systems to do maintenance and repairs on the heating and air conditioning systems at both campuses. The district will pay $14,470 a month in the one-year contract, according to Drafall.
The South campus HAV system is no longer under warranty. At South Campus alone, there are 274 filters and 30 prefilters in the system that requires semi-annual replacement.
The scope of work will also include updates to the electronic systems at South Campus and access to certified computer technicians.
Precision was the only bidder on the project, Drafall said, so the district opted to sign a one-year contract only. The district has worked with the company since 1996.
“We are putting air into 580,000 square feet, whether it’s warm or cold outside,” Drafall said. “We have huge facilities and huge systems to maintain.”
PARKING LOT PROJECT
Denler, Inc. of Mokena was awarded a bid for seal-coating of the South Campus parking lot and pavement maintenance work at a cost of $53,566. The district had budgeted $70,000 for the project, according to Drafall.
Denler was the lowest of four bidders to submit costs.
