The WCCS School Board has found two ways by which to save the taxpayers money. The Eagle Tech project is a serious undertaking but board members are working with the city to replace a water main that will provide a sprinkler system for Eagle Tech at the Marshall Center.
The boardâ€™s original plan included a water main that would run along Walnut Street. The city had planned to install one running up Elm Street. The board can hook up to the cityâ€™s water main, paying only for the pipe it will take to connect to Eagle Techâ€”for a fee less than $5,000.
Additionally, the board discovered it could combine two jobs into oneâ€”a courier and a print specialist. The duties for both, carried out by one person, save the school system $23,000.
