Board doesn’t act on HHS revisions

Published 12:16pm Friday, July 5, 2013

The Hartselle Board of Education chose not to make changes at this time to the front entrance loop at Hartselle High School, which would have added a fire hydrant and a fire lane behind the school.

Board president Dr. James Joy said the changes were at the request of the Hartselle Fire Department, which noted that emergency vehicles could not access certain parts of the school. In particular, the loop was too narrow for a fire engine to navigate. The department’s vehicles cannot access the back side of the school in the event of an emergency.

Joy made a motion to consider the change order from Baggett Construction, which would cost $126,763. However, other board members failed to second the motion, which caused the action to die before a vote.

“This is something that we are going to need to resolve,” Joy said. “I anticipate that this will come back before the board again at a later time.”

The next board meeting will be June 22 at 6 p.m.

In other business, the board approved hiring Kevin Shivers and Jesse Perrin at Hartselle High School, Charles Holladay as a custodian at Crestline Elementary and Amy Crow at F.E. Burleson Elementary.
