Usually when Grounds and Maintenance Director Kevin Schultz comes before the Dixon School Board he is telling them of how much money the district will have to spend to get a project done.
This past Wednesday night during their monthly meeting the board was listening to a report from Schultz. One of the topics he brought up was some money the district will be receiving, not paying out.
Schultz said they recently received a payment on an insurance claim. This claim was made after they found asbestos under the floor in the gym. The floor was being fixed following a roof leak and now the school will be getting back about $100,000.
The other bit of change the district has received is from a ComEd Energy Grant they applied for. This was in context with the improvements and repairs being made at the schools. Schultz said they have received about $150,000.
All of the money will be put back into the funds to repair and improve the schools.
