Firmer Sense of Unsuitable Soil Costs Coming to Glen Rock

Cost to replace unsuitable soil at Glen Rock High School have tallied $800,000 but a meeting next week could see that figure reduced, according to a report.

The Glen Rock school district could be closing in on what it will have to fork over to at its multimillion dollar field renovation project at the high school.

According to a report in the Glen Rock Gazette, the school board's operations committee will be meeting with contractor Turco Golf on Wed., Aug. 15. and should have a better idea of its financial state on the project.

At its July 8 meeting, the district informed the public that "unsuitable" soil was found at the high school sports complex must be removed and replaced for any building to continue construction.

The board approved a change order in the amount of $600,000 worth or work already performed, as well as spillover amount of $200,000 for any further findings of bad soil at the lower soccer field.

The change order could put future projects in jeopardy, and district officials are hoping the figure can be negotiated down.

Business Administrator Michael Rinderknecht cryptically said in July that he would work behind the scenes to lower Turco's work estimate, which speakers at the previous board meeting said sounded unreasonably high.

The total amount for change orders (a previous change order cost $152,000)  in the project could exceed 20 percent, meaning the state will have to allow Glen Rock to make the commitments.

Glen Rock Public Schools expects to have $1.5 million left over in its capital reserve project by next June, Rinderknecht said. Unspent monies on the budget transfer would be returned to the capital budget.

I gather that we are still on target for a September project-end?

The question to me is how many bore samples did they do BEFORE the project took place and in how spread out of an area?

If I remember correctly - 6 Samples. I'm not of locations, but it does not seem adequate for such a large area.

Can we get an update? Wasn't there a BOE Operations Committee meeting last night? Are all our football games going to be away?
