I just watched, with some interest, the first 3 parts of the Neighborhood Schools meeting on the Mercury website.
This renovation plan that Tom has “cooked up” is throwing up red flags everywhere. Many board member have concerns about increasing PSD’s current $34 million debit and getting ourselves in over our collective heads if asbestos or mold issues crop up during window replacement and installation of geothermal heating equipment.
The savings are not enough to justify the cost.
Again, I will state the obvious. We have no money. We can not afford to take out a loan, even at zero interest, to pay for this. It is not cost efficient. Unless we get grant money that does not need repayment, this idea is out of the question.
Tom, please drive thru.
