The bid from the other company, BA Supply, was around $50,000 higher and would take about four times as long to deliver.  It included 70 fixtures and a console.  

Funding for the project will come from the Sandzen fund.

In other business, the Board approved a bid from Heartland Seating Company for new bleachers at the Hiawatha Middle School in the amount $74,704.
