TONTOGANY - The Otsego School Board Wednesday accepted a bid for asbestos removal at Grand Rapids Elementary, in anticipation of demolition at the school later this summer.
The board accepted the $27,600 bid from Midwest Environmental for asbestos and haz-mat removal at a special meeting held that morning.
"The base estimate was $45,000, so it was a savings of $17,400 from the budget," said Superintendent Adam Koch.
The asbestos removal is expected in July.
He indicated that bids for the demolition work will open May 22, with the actual demolition expected in July or August.
Grand Rapids Elementary currently houses grades 7 and 8 while renovation work is being finalized at the junior high building on the Otsego Schools campus in Tontogany.
