The Washington School Board held a special meeting yesterday to approve electrical work.  The work will be electrical service replacement in the 1918 building.  This bid award is a re-bid from earlier in the year.  Out of the four bids submitted, the winning bid went to Dave Bessine Electric based in Burlington for over $136,000.

The estimated cost of the project was $125,000. Bessine was also awarded work for other projects in the building totaling over $39,000.

The additional projects are being funded as part of the contingency plan in the budget.  Also during the meeting a bid was awarded to Reliable Network Solutions of Muscatine to expand the wireless network in the new high school.  The cost for the expansion is over $73,000.  Reliable Network Solutions was one of only two bidders for that project.
