A Resolution to Amend the  FY 2004 Capital Improvements Program (CIP) and Appropriate an Additional $3,650,000 for Renovation of Claude Thompson Elementary School

Topic Description:


On October 25, 2004, the School Board adopted a resolution to request an additional $3,650,000 to renovate Claude Thompson Elementary School. The Board of Supervisors reviewed this request during a a work session on November 10, 2004, at which time staff was directed to schedule a public hearing on this issue for the December 9, 2004 meeting.




In fiscal year 2003, $3.1 million was approved in the FY 2004 – FY 2008 Capital Improvement Plan for renovation of Claude Thompson Elementary School. Funding was included for two years (FY 2004/05). The first borrowing of $1,572,000 was completed in FY 2004. In May of FY 2004 the School Board’s architects provided a revised cost estimate of over $8.0 million for the project. After several months of deliberations and public hearings the School Board adopted a modified concept plan for $6.8 million. The School Board is asking the Board of Supervisors to amend the currently approved CIP and appropriate the additional funding of $3,650,000. This amount does not include $465,000 for the leasing of trailers at Coleman or approximately $559,000 for furniture and equipment. The School Board has indicated it will support these requirements through other means.

 Conduct a public hearing and consider adoption of the attached resolution.
