Goessel school board approves special meeting

Staff writer

Goessel School Board scheduled a special meeting for 7 p.m. Oct. 29 for approving the bid list Josh Walker of Loyd Builders plans to submit to the board for the school’s new addition.

“Bids for the project were sent out today,” Superintendent John Fast said on Tuesday. “Today was our pre bid meeting. Bids are due to Loyd Builders Oct. 22.”

In other school improvements, USD 411 also recently upgraded their 30 mg line to a 50 mg line with Moundridge Telephone Internet.

“This should dramatically improve the capacity of our Internet connection,” Fast said.
