The Taos Municipal School Board voted to move forward with several construction projects Tuesday (June 11).
The board voted unanimously to collect quotes from local construction companies for a roofing project at Chrysalis Alternative School. Living Designs Group architect Doug Patterson said replacing the school's roof would be a "major project" but that $37,000 is budgeted to address a more problematic section. He said he is hopeful bids come in under that amount.
The board also voted to seek bids to re-roof Vista Grande High School, in the Celestino Romero building on Paseo del Cañon East. Patterson said the district has $83,000 in the budget for that project. He said the roofing projects would likely be paid for with voter-approved SB-9 funds.
Other projects the district will pursue are lighting for the Taos High School baseball field, which could cost $380,000, and a multi-phase project at the Enos García campus that includes parking, road, fencing and playground renovations and could cost as much as $1.2 million.
