PRAS approves snow removal bid

LEROY — When the snow falls in the area, Pine River Area Schools staff, students, buses and visitors won't have issues when it comes to driving through the high/middle school complex.

At a PRAS Board of Education meeting on Nov. 9, the board awarded a bid to Deverman Builders for snow plowing services this winter. The bid was $115 an hour with snowfall at two or more inches.

In more business, the board:

  • approved Mitchell McDonald as the seventh-grade boys basketball coach;
  • accepted a resignation letter from bus driver Barb Sibary; and,
  • approved a bond term of 15 years. Last month, the board approved ballot proposition language for the May 2016 election for a $5.8 million bond proposal. The bond will address issues including structural improvement and safety concerns, among others.
