As Los Alamos Public Schools Superintendent Gene Schmidt said, “these are exciting times for Los Alamos.” During the regular school board Tuesday night, a few high octane pieces of news were shared with the board.
Schmidt told the board that the school district has earned a $300,000 grant from the American Recovery and Reinvestment State Energy Act to construct a 50-kilowatt photovoltaic solar electric array system near Los Alamos Middle School.
Now that the money has been officially awarded, the clock is ticking to get the project completed.
Schmidt said that the deadline for the array is Dec. 31. Time is short, but a strategy is in place to meet the deadline, he said.
On July 19, a committee will meet with three contractors, which were among eight companies the state selected for the program, to choose which one will build the array.
The project has also been discussed with county officials for Planning and Zoning needs.
The grant will cover all the costs, Schmidt said, so no funds from the district will be used.
In other financial issues, the school district approved the bond sale resolution for the Los Alamos High School construction project.
Nine bids were submitted, but Robert W. Baird and Co. was selected to purchase a
$20 million bond.
