Thursday – May 26: The Wellsville Board of Education met in special session a week ago today to take care of three items on the meeting agenda. Present at the meeting was BOE President Tom Brophey, Board Members Ed Bauer, Mike Cook, Karen Dash and Bill Miller. Also attending was District Superintendent Rich Bereschik. The meeting was held in the High School Conference Room.
The first item on the agenda was awarding a contract to E & D Speciality Stands Inc., of Columbus, for the new grand stand at Nicholson Stadium. The contract to build and install the new aluminum stands is for $230,300 and will include a press box similar to the one across the field.
Bereschik noted there were five bids received to replace the recently demolished eastern side grand stands. The E & D bid was approximately $19,000 less than the next highest bid received. The new stands will be prefabricated at the factory to be assembled at the stadium. It is expected to take approximately two weeks to assemble once the company starts. The new stands will be ready for the 2011 football home opener in August.
The other two items on the agenda was to accept the resignations of two long time Garfield Elementary teachers. Retiring is Mrs. Cindy Zelasko with 40 years of service and Mrs. Linda Dye with 21 years service. Bereschik noted Mrs. Dye has a total of 31 years teaching experience having worked elsewhere prior to coming to Wellsville. Both resignations were accepted with regrets and best wishes.
The meeting was adjourned at 3:35 PM. The next regularly scheduled meeting is set for Monday, June 20 at 6:30 PM, in the Superintendent's Office at 929 Center St.
