Knox Community School Board Members Discuss Middle School Air Conditioning Units

 The Knox Community School Board members discussed the air conditioning units at the middle school during their meeting this week.

Superintendent A.J. Gappa said the units are getting older and showing some great wear and tear. The company has offered the corporation a special program.

“The Trane company has offered a renewal program where we could put in refurbished compressors to make sure they keep going and do an annual inspection and tune up every year,” explained Gappa. “They will make sure the cooling units do not go out. If the compressors go out, then you have a much larger cost to replace with a new unit.”

The board will make a decision on a contract in a future meeting.
