The Macon County School Board held its monthly meeting on Monday night. Tracy Tallent, maintenance director of the schools, presented the board with some infrastructure issues that are in need of attention in the coming days.
Tallent said that two HVAC systems are needed at Macon Middle School. The maintenance on the system would cost $64,673.
“These units that are on top of the cafeteria and band area are '85 models and we've done a lot of work on them in past 10 years, just since I've been here,” Tallent told the board. “Under the sixth grade addition, there are parts hanging out just to make them operate. We've replaced the compressors on that particular unit three times just since I've been here.”
Superintendent Dr. Chris Baldwin informed the board that the project needed to be under way before the weather turns cold.
