IN RE:  FIRE MARSHALL ANALYSIS – SCHOOL CONSOLIDATION

Board members were provided the recent inspection reports of the schools.

Attorney Mullins reported that the Fire Marshall’s Office is not able to come in and make an analysis that they have been asked to do.  That is not a service they provide.

Supervisor Rivers noted that he had requested this information and he accepts the information that Attorney Mullins has received.  With some recent developments that have gone on with the school situation, it becomes apparent that the cram plan is very temporary.  With information shared between Coeburn and St. Paul, within the last few days, it appears, in his opinion, that the cram plan is no longer than a two (2) year situation; not a permanent fix.  His concern was the safety of the kids.

BOARD COMMENTS

Board comments consist of the following:

  • Economic Impact Study

  • School consolidation / City of Norton

  • Media coverage

ADJOURN

There being no further business to come before the Board the meeting adjourned at 9:30 PM.
