Tod Williams, Superintendent of Okmulgee School District, gave his report to the Okmulgee Board of Education on capital improvement projects.
He showed the Board Members 3 massive planning and bid books for the new construction and remodeling bid specifications.
The architectural drawings laid spread out on the school conference table as Williams reported to the board members.
“The pre-bid conference was held with all the potential bidders for our construction projects and they took bids on 22 separate construction packages including, the band room, the middle school secure vestibule, the armory, the field house renovations and other odds and ends," said Williams.
"We expect to have the bids analyzed by the next board meeting and have a list of recommendations for bid packets; some will be rejected, approximately 5 or 6 out of 22 bids and then we will be off and running,” he said.
The building will be located on the lot north of the Armory.
