Work continues on the Warren County Career Center's welding shop upgrade.
During Monday evening's meeting of the Physical Plant and Facilities Committee of the Warren County School District's board of directors, Dr. Norbert Kennerknecht, director of buildings and grounds, said the booths for the welding shop have been manufactured.
The ventilation system package has been delivered, Kennerknecht said, and the project will be completed by the target date, which is the end of Christmas break.
Windows have also been replaced at Sugar Grove Elementary School, Kennerknecht said, adding that the new ones came with triple glazing and blinds.
Committee member Tom Knapp said he had the opportunity to see the finished window project.
"It looked good," he said. "My third-grade grandson was impressed."
Doors at the school will be replaced during Christmas break, Kennerknecht said.
Committee Chair Donna Zariczny asked if the door project was an extension of the window project, which Kennerknecht said it was.
Work on the Youngsville High School and Eisenhower High School track surfaces will begin next week, Kennerknecht said.
Zariczny said a priority list for next year's maintenance projects is needed soon.
Kennerknecht said it would be his Christmas gift to the district's principals.
Reports are also needed for each building after the first of the year, Zariczny said, which will provide information on the makeup of each one.
Kennerknecht said he recently attended an Erie government meeting where electricity costs for 2010 were discussed.
A group gave a presentation at that meeting which had also presented to the Intermediate Unit 5, Kennerknecht.
While no decision was made at the meeting, Kennerknecht said he's trying to get a plan to prevent a 30 to 40 percent increase in electricity bills.
