Time to fix schools is now

By The Staff

Dear Editor,

 

We are responding to the Jan. 6 letter from Richard Hannemann titled, “There is no hurry for bond.”   Richard states, “We have already seen, far too often in the past year, what happens when programs and expenditures get pushed forward too fast and too hard, in a need for speed that has no objective foundation.”  

 

While it may appear that the Bond Election has moved ahead quickly, planning and preparation for this election began 2 ½ years ago. At the time the board formed a committee of community members and staff with expertise in building and construction.  

 

This committee represented Facilities, Civil and Structural Engineers with a proven track record in planning and construction. They produced a plan that prioritized facility needs across the district. It was determined that Los Alamos High School, the middle school and Aspen School had major issues that require immediate attention.

 

The district consulted with its financial advisors to formulate the plan for replacing and repairing our buildings. The only way to acquire the funding is through a General Obligation Bond Election.
