BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — It’s not just COVID-19 plaguing the Palm Beach County School District. It’s Drywood Termites, Wood Borers and Powder Post Beetles.
The school board is preparing to ratify a contract to kill these pests during its March 24th meeting.
(News App readers click here for full report).
The official language from the agenda item: “I recommend the Board approve additional funds for Bid 21c-23c for the purchase of Fumigation/Extermination of Drywood Termites, Wood Borers and Powder Post Beetles service sin the amount of $150,000, not to exceed $400,000 annually. The additional funds requested will be used to control active termite damage at multiple schools throughout the District.”
The school board, which must designate the “theme” of the expenditure, has chosen “high performance culture” as the reason the money must be spent. The other options: “effective and relevant instruction,” “positive and supportive school climate,” and “talent development.”
It was not immediately clear which of the four companies vying for the contract will be hired. The school district reports Beach Environmental Exterminating, Empire Pest Solutions, Hubert Environmental Services, and Maxwell Pest Control all submitted bids or partial bids.
It was also not immediately clear which schools have suffered termite or other bug damage.
