Vetrovsky to lead Pawnee City School Board for another year

(KLZA)-- The Pawnee City Board of Education elected officers for 2024 when they met Wednesday evening.

Jason Vetrovsky was elected for another term at President of the Pawnee City School Board.

J. W. Vlcek was elected as Vice-President. Hope Koester was elected Secretary of the Board with Bobbi Haarhues being elected Board Treasurer.

Board committee members for 2024 were appointed and the Board approved a number of updated policies.

Superintendent Brian Rottinghaus reported to the Board that he has contacted Grunwald Mechanical about assessing what it could take to add air conditioning to the school gym and update the boiler / heating system.

In 2021 the Board considered using ESSER funds to complete such a project but the bids came in twice the estimated cost. Extreme inflation at the time and federal funding requirements to reduce the spread of Covid-19 are thought to be among the reasons the bids were so high at the time.

Without those federal funding requirements, the Superintendent is hopeful the Grunwald company may be able to develop a more economical approach. He also noted the current boiler for the gymnasium is 52 years old.
