This is a contract with BVH Architecture for Pre‐design Architectural/Engineering services for the new High School Auditorium. The services will be completed for a fixed fee of $130,000 plus reimbursable expenses. A timeline has been requested so that if the Board chooses to fund this through a General Obligation Bond Election in November we would be in a position to do so. The work that is detailed to be completed by the end of April/May is work that will need to be completed no matter when you would make the decision regarding continuation of the project or how it will be funded.
