NR schools to seek grant

NEW RIEGEL – New Riegel Board of Education members met for a special session Friday morning to approve the pursuit of an OSS Joint Solid Waste District grant for $6,052 toward the purchase of plastic lumber containing at least 25 percent recycled material. Deadline for the application is June 30 and a decision should be made in 30 days.

The original quote for the material was $7,565 from Bright Idea Shops and the board of education is to provide at least 20 percent matching funds of $1,513.

The board hopes to replace materials on 19 wooden benches surrounding the facility and 6 picnic tables.

Another special session is scheduled for 7 p.m. July 7 with their regular meeting at 7 p.m. July 14.
