DCSS committee OKs items

ALBANY, Ga. — The Dougherty County School Board’s Building and Grounds Committee on Wednesday approved a list of change orders to Phase I projects at Albany and Dougherty high schools — including a $122,475 renovation of the cosmetology lab and classroom annex at Dougherty.

“The lab was originally part of the Phase II project but we had some money left from Phase I, so we decided to go ahead and use that SPLOST (special-purpose local-option sales tax) money now,” committee member Darrel Ealum said. “We already have $131,000 worth of equipment to put into the lab. When it’s finished, it will be a first-class cosmetology/barber lab where students can learn in a salon environment.”

The committee also approved $23,203 worth of other change orders at Dougherty.

At Albany, the committee approved a $2,282 change order to add horn strobes to the fire alarm system

In other work, the committee approved $3,750 to Walker Brothers for a replacement HVAC unit at Monroe High School and $6,985 to JVC Associates for Leadership Academy modifications at Isabella Complex.

The committee tabled a paving project at Sylvandale, an HVAC replacement for the DCSS police office and four other items involving architect contracts.

The approved items will be placed before the full school board for approval at its next meeting on Sept. 12.
