Special Society Meeting Scheduled for January 21, 2019

At the PCGS November 2018 Board of Trustees Meeting, a motion was approved to call a society meeting to consider an addendum to the approved January 25, 2016 society motion. The addendum would allow the fourth and final phase of the building project to proceed according to a prioritized list as funding is secured. The motion includes an exception for construction bid packages, which may move forward once 42% of the bid amount is available cash on hand, and 85% has been pledged. The original January 25, 2016 motion stated that groundbreaking for each phase of the building project would not commence until the 42% cash on hand and 85% of the money pledged was attained. Over the past three months, the Building Project Committee created a prioritized list of items to be completed in phase four. The motion going before the society will allow the building project committee to proceed with phase four items in which money is already available. There is approximately $500,000 cash on hand and $1 million pledged for the final phase of the project. A small portion of the itemized list will likely require the use of an architect and be bid out to general contractors. The building project committee would proceed with this portion of the list provided the 42% and 85% fundraising thresholds are met. The primary goal of the fourth phase of the building project is updating the legacy portions of the school that were not impacted by phase three. The meeting is set for January 21 at 5:30 p.m. in the Pella Christian Grade School band/choir room. Electronic absentee ballots will be made available.
