The Calhoun Board of Education has approved an $815,000 low bid for repair work to be done at Pleasant Hill Elementary School.

Repairs have been underway at the school since last summer, related to major problems with a sewer line running under the school building.

The board discussed three bids received on the project during an executive session last week, and called for a special meeting Thursday to award the contract.

Superintendent Roger Propst recommended the board approve the bid of $815,000 from Danhill Construction Company, contingent upon final approval of the School Building Authority of Rock Branch Mechanical (sheet metal) and Bell Mechanical (plumbing) as mechanical subcontractors.

The Motion carried unanimously.

Three contractors bid on the project, which involved two level bidding.

Dan Hill Construction: base bid $550,000, alternate project $265,000, totaling $815,000; Dougherty Company: base bid $728,000, alternate project $397,000, totaling $1,125,000; WV Heating and Plumbing: base bid $762,000, alternative project $438,000, totaling $1,200,000.

A update on the project was not given at Monday night's meeting, although school officials have previously indicated the repairs are on track.
