Columbia, West Central can wait, $60K needed for administration carpeting
Those schools, however, will have to wait for their improvements.
Meanwhile, the Joplin R-8 Board of Education is expected to approve spending nearly $60,000 for carpeting for the Huff Administration's new home at the old Memorial Middle School building.
The proposal, which is signed off on by Huff and buildings project coordinator Mike Johnson, indicates that the money will come out of the 2014-2015 capital outlay funds and that bids have already been taken.
Of course, it is on the consent agenda for Tuesday night's 6 p.m. meeting, meaning unless it is specifically brought up by a board member, it will be passed without a word of discussion.
