One of the items on the agenda of the monthly Tahquamenon Area Schools Board of Education meeting was the approval of a roof replacement bid for the facility. The roof replacement is part of the school bond project.

The meeting was held Monday, March 21at 6 p.m. in the TAS Library.

Three companies submitted bids for the project. The bid was awarded to Nasi Roofing LLC of Minocqua, WI. at a total of $943,900.  “All of the bids were under what had been budgeted,” stated TAS superintendent Stacy Price. “Due to the bid coming in lower than projected, they worked with Nasi to increase the R-factor on the roof, so our R-factor will be R-30.”

Even with the additions, the cost is still under the projected budget, Price said.

Price said the project will begin at the end of the 2021-2022 school year and will be completed during the second week of August.
