Updated: Ridgemont BOE accepts bid for PreK-12 building; set to host groundbreaking ceremony Sunday

The Ridgemont Board of Education, during a special meeting conducted Friday, accepted the bid from Adena Corporation for the construction of the new PreK-12 school building. In a unanimous vote, the board approved the single prime building construction contract in the amount of $17,192,600.

The board also learned that the resurfacing of the high school track is not within the scope of the school district's bidding statute and the plan is to solicit bids from contractors for the work, which will be presented at the board's next regular meeting April 17.

The board announced that officials of the school district will break ground for the new building on Sunday at 2 p.m. The new school will be located at 560 West Taylor Street, Mt. Victory.

Because of wet conditions, visitors are asked to park at the Ridgemont Elementary East Lot, Mt. Victory Park, Mt. Victory Methodist Church, or the behind the Plaza Inn or Hardin Motors.

Buses will provide transportation to and from the site. The first shuttle will start at 1:15 p.m. from each site. The last shuttle will be at 1:45 p.m.

In case of rain, the ceremony will be held in the elementary gym, 310 West Taylor Street.
