The Patrick Henry School Board of education reviewed some possible improvements in the high school H-Vac system, along with discussion on a residential development project in Deshler during their meeting this week. The Patrick Henry board will be contracting with Prodigy Building Solutions of the Dayton area to conduct an engineering study on the current high school duct work, to see what it would cost to add air conditioning. The board has authorized up to $50,000 for this study. Money for this H-VAC project would come from any revenue the Patrick Henry district receives from the Rover pipeline that was installed.
The board is seeking a bit more information on the proposed tax increment financing project in Deshler for a residential development. Members of the board did express their support for the project.
