A light agenda and few speakers kept Tuesday night’s Liberty County Board of Education meeting brief.
The agenda’s only action item — a vote to approve the lowest qualifying bid and authorize a contract for Bradwell Institute’s security system work — was scrapped because neither of the two expected bids were adequate, according to LCSS Superintendent Dr. Judy Scherer.
The new submission due date for bids is April 19, said Scherer, who added that the board can’t release the names of the companies that were expected to bid for the work but said officials do expect the same two to resubmit bids. The change should not affect the project’s timetable.
“This will not delay the work and we still should complete it on schedule,” Scherer said.
Hannah Williams-Donegan and Aja Amani, speaking on behalf of Savannah Feed the Hungry, requested use of a school cafeteria or gymnasium for the nonprofit group’s April 21 food giveaway. The coordinators said Savannah Feed the Hungry visits Hinesville on the fourth Saturday of every month to provide meals for community members in need. Previously, the group had been using the National Guard Armory, but an overbooking conflict has come into play.
BoE Chairwoman Lily Baker said Scherer, who had Williams-Donegan’s contact information, would be in touch regarding the request.
The BoE voted to move personnel matters into executive session.
