South Barber Board has presentation on new bleachers, personnel changes, reorganizes for new year


South Barber USD255 held their July meeting Monday night with two members absent: Melissa Simpson and Ryan Molz. All others were present when President Mark Pollock called the meeting to order including: Bryan Quick, Deb Helfrich, Mariah Doherty and Mike Miller. Superintendent Dr. Mylo Miller sat at the board table as did Board Clerk Julie Johnson. Grades 7-12 Principal Brent Shaffer was present as was the new part-time assistant elementary principal and classroom teacher Kaynette Scheck.

This was the annual re-organizational meeting and typically the board holds election of officers. However with the November election, the board signed a resolution saying they would wait until January to elect the new board officers.

However, they did go ahead and approve Board Clerk Julie Johnson; Deputy Board Clerk Luke MacKinney; and Treasurer Walter Fry.

New Bleacher Presentation

Craig Lipsey with Hussey Seating made a detailed presentation (just over one hour) about new bleachers in South Barber's 7-12 gym. This would replace the existing wooden bleachers that are the original ones from when the high school was built in the 1970s.

Lipsey's quote was $144,853, He brought samples of the heavy plastic seats with backs that he said are superior in comfort to the wood. He's been in the bleacher business 42 years and brought pictures of recent work he has done. His bleachers include ADA compliance seating.

His quote includes using three colors in the seating for the price he quoted.

After checking out South Barber's bleachers, he said, “If you don't buy bleachers this year, you need to put it in your budget.”

After discussion later in the meeting, the board agreed to table the bleacher subject until the next meeting.
