The supervisors also approved a transfer of Capital Improvement Plan funds between two school related projects.
In the Nov. 20 consent agenda were the four school items that were approved without discussion and in the same vote as approval of the last meeting’s minutes.
The three maintenance items will be paid from the Capital Reserve Maintenance Fund. The first was for replacement of a fuel site computer system. The fuel site is the pump behind Carysbrook Elementary School.
The system is used by both county agencies and the school system with costs shared between the various agencies. The current system has had reported outages resulting in charges based on averages based on previous month usage. A new system will bring more accurate reports to properly charge the consumption.
The request for a new computer system was approved for $20,402.86.
The school district also requested money for a failed tube bundle heat exchange unit at Central Elementary School. The unit is reportedly leaking and beyond repair. The unit heats 24 classrooms in the original building.
A new tube bundle heat exchange unit was approved for $5,180.
The final maintenance fund request was for $7,400 to refurbish original lockers at the Fluvanna Middle School. The lockers in question are the yellow and navy blue lockers that were used by Fluvanna County High School for years. The locks are no longer operational and will need new padlock eyes for students to securely store belongings.
The project was approved for $7,400.
The CIP budget transfer is to moved $55,500 from the FMS/Central Elementary school wastewater treament project to the Carysbrook Elementary wastewater treatment project. The original CIP had $100,000 allocated for preliminary work and securing engineering services on the FMS/Central project, according to documents provided in the meeting’s agenda. The Carysbrook project is funded at $250,000.
The division requested the additional $55,500 for the Carysbrook project because the entire $250,000 will reportedly be used for engineering and design work.
The three maintenance fund requests were recommended by county administration after review and the budget transfer was noted as routine.
