MASON, MI – Mason Public Schools has formed a Capital Improvement Committee (CIC) to oversee the details of the capital improvement project underway after the passage of the $69.7 million bond proposal in November 2017. The first meeting was held February 19, 2018.
Board President, Kurt Creamer, appointed Christopher Mumby (Committee Chair), Liz Evans and Steve Duane to the CIC. The CIC will meet monthly with the superintendent, chief financial officer, facility director, architect, construction manager, technology director and owner’s representative to discuss the progress of the Mason Public Schools bond projects and to prepare information for the full Board of Education.
At the first meeting, the CIC received updates on the Harvey Education Center (HEC) schematic design, high school weight room renovation, technology infrastructure and equipment, the removal of the pole barn at the HEC and the disposal of excess district equipment. The high school weight room renovation will include new weight and exercise equipment, a fresh coat of paint, new flooring and a new drinking fountain. Surplus equipment is being gathered from across the district and Sheridan Realty and Auction Co. will host an online auction to sell old and excess equipment.
The CIC will meet on the fourth Thursday of each month, and the public is welcome to attend all meetings to stay informed on the progress of the bond proposal projects. “Community members are encouraged to attend the monthly CIC meetings. The information shared and discussed will be important as we move through the project,” stated MPS Superintendent, Ron Drzewicki.
As more details are finalized, information will be shared on the Mason Public Schools website. The next CIC meeting is on Thursday, March 22, at 6 pm.
