At the regular Monday night meeting, the Brandon board of education voted unanimously to approve a bid for replacing the septic field at Harvey Swanson elementary. They also approved a bid to improve the preschool playground.
“It’s in the fenced-in area of the preschool,” said Diane Zedan, Brandon Preschool Director. “Basically we’re taking the two swing sets down and putting in one swing set and adding a play structure to the whole thing.”
The improvements will also improve accessibility for the playground. The playground improvement bid was awarded to Penchura LLC to exceed $90,340.
The failing septic field at Harvey Swanson is one of three systems at the elementary school, and the bid to replace it was awarded to R&R Earthmovers, not to exceed $47,780.
