North Judson-San Pierre School Board Approves Purchases of Mower, Wall-Coverings

The North Judson-San Pierre School Board approved some purchases Tuesday. Board members voted to spend over $10,000 for a mower from Culver Power Equipment. Superintendent Annette Zupin said the corporation’s current mower is old and needs to be replaced. She added that money is included in this year’s Capital Projects budget for that purpose.

Additionally, Zupin told board members that the corporation’s locker replacement project has led to the need for some wall-coverings. “When we take the lockers out, the panel above needs either painted or recovered, and it’s simply a vinyl that goes on top,” she explained. “It goes with the lockers. It makes it all tie together nicely, and so it’s really just an extension of that locker project.”

The school board approved the lowest of three quotes, which was issued by Stan’s Painting. Zupin said the wall-coverings will be funded with money from last year’s general obligation bond issue, the same as with the rest of the locker project.
