School board approves low bid for lift construction at Magic City Campus

The Minot Public School Board approved a low bid on Tuesday from Rolac Contracting Inc., to complete work on a handicapped accessible lift at Minot High School-Magic City Campus.

Building and grounds supervisor Jared Edwards told the board that bids for the project came in under the original estimate.

The low bid was $128,600.

The lift will enable students and others who use wheelchairs to more easily access the pool level of the high school. Supt. Mark Vollmer, who was formerly the principal at Magic City Campus, told the board that he had been asking for a lift at the school for 18 years and is glad that the project has finally been approved. There is currently no easy way for a student in a wheelchair to access that level.

The lift will be installed to the left of Door 36 at the high school.

The school board, which met in person but also livestreamed the meeting on Youtube, then went into executive session to discuss negotiations for property.

Vollmer said earlier on Wednesday that he cannot provide further information about what land purchase is under discussion.
