Liberty High School construction costs rise by $138,000

February 5, 2013

By Staff

The Issaquah School Board approved an increase of $138,328 to Liberty High School’s construction bill Jan. 9.

Most of the 13 items that accounted for the increase range between $1,000 and $6,000, including $4,668 to restore power to the parking lot lighting, $3,599 to reconnect cold water in the boiler room and $2,031 to demolish greenhouses that were not originally shown on the drawings. The change order also include two big ticket items — $77,207 for electrical conduit additions to provide power to the stadium expansion in Phase 3, and $21,596 to add an ADA bridge to the temporary locker rooms.

The increase, which includes $12,000 in taxes, brings Liberty’s construction bill total to $19,989,583.

    $138K is a huge amount added to the construction project. Example: 21K for a bridge to temporary locker rooms. Perhaps math should be stressed more in the school board so they can learn the meaning of budget. I approved the levy but do not appreciate the fact that it is not necessary to work within the budget.

    Also, Maywood Middle School will have a beautiful track, baseball field and landscaping, but is that helping educate our students.

    Is the parking lot a Liberty going to be available when school starts next month? With cars parked up and down all the streets around the school, there are bound to be traffic accidents.

    I have noticed every time I drive by the high school that more and more is being torn up by the front entrance, What is being done now? School starts shortly and before the tear up, it was almost impossible to see driving on the streets surrounding the school with all the cars parking on the road. If there haven’t already been accidents it is a miracle. What is the plan for parking when school resumes?

Got something to say?
