Spring Lake schools to seek bids for proposals on maintenance

A resolution to seek bids for maintenance proposals was unanimously approved by the Spring Lake school board on Monday evening. The district will seek bids from outside companies to perform maintenance services, Spring Lake Public Schools Superintendent Dennis Furton said. Proposals from both private companies and the district's current maintenance department will be judged on costs over a three-year contract period, he said. Bids are due May 19, Furton said.

In an effort to close a structural deficit in the district’s budget, the school board is looking at several options to save money. At the same meeting, the board voted unanimously on a plan to change transportation policy and routes that would save the district a projected $74,000 per year, according to Furton.

Board Treasurer Lisa Ashcraft told the board that she was not opposed to seeking bids for proposals, but she felt that Ted Rescorla, the district’s new maintenance supervisor, should have more time to find ways to save money on school maintenance. The district shares Rescorla’s services with Grand Haven Area Public Schools.
