School Board Goes Ahead with TV Station Actions
Hefte Construction Co. was awarded a $109,086 contract for construction of the station’s studios near Ferris High School.
Architect William H. Trogdon said the district saved $12,214 by asking for a second call of bids on the project. After acceptance by the board of a lower bid had been ruled out by state officials, the district would have had to accept a $121,300 offer.
Trogdon said the total for all contracts on educational television construction now is $180,181.
The second vital step was the official acceptance by the board of a deed to property on Krell Hill donated to the district as a transmitter site by KHQ, Inc.
In addition, the board authorized its president and secretary to sign easement agreements on adjoining property needed before transmitter erection can begin.
