Discussion Items
7.01 Approval of Agreement with IWCC (Use of Football Field)
Dr. Kinney, President of IWCC, wishes to extend our agreement of the college using our football facilities for an additional 10 years. This agreement would be in place until 2029. Dr. Schweer had our district legal counsel review the agreement. I have provided you with a copy of the original agreement showing the changes along with a revised agreement. Dr. Kinney has reviewed the revised agreement and is having his board approve the revised agreement on Monday as well.

This has been a positive relationship and the agreement will be in place now even farther into the future.

7.02 Contract with BVH for Press Box Replacement Project
BVH has provided us with a contract for the professional services that they will provide associated with the construction of the Home Side Football Press Box replacement project. Please keep in mind that the completion of this project will be for the fall of 2020. I have provided you with the revised timeline. The contract calls for a fixed fee of $38,000.
