The USD 445 Board of Education holds a special meeting this morning. Members were asked by Coffeyville Public Schools administration to approve the purchase of a new boiler. The district relies on two boilers located at Roosevelt for the middle school and Field Kindley High School. One of those recently failed. After a bid process, board members approved a bid from Boyle Services, Incorporated of Tulsa. They will replace the boiler for $59,418.
It will take three weeks for the new parts to be delivered. In the meantime, the old boiler will be taken out.
