Indian Lake School Board stresses creativity for survival

— Attention turned to the fact that the surprise asbestos abatement during the current building construction project has eaten up the funds needed for the generator necessary to make the building an emergency shelter. Discussions ensued surrounding the potential receipt of the grant for the biomass boiler and how the savings in energy that such a boiler should provide could save the amount necessary to cover the generator.

School Superintendent Mark Brand made the proposal that perhaps there will be an opportunity to package a new funding request for the generator and remaining asbestos abatement and go to the voters explaining that the biomass boiler savings is expected to eventually recoup these expenditures to the budget of future years.

Voorhees summarized the tenor of the evening’s meeting when he said, “There is a movement afoot to consolidate (districts) … We need to be creative to survive.”
