New appliances could mean a good savings for the Lemon Grove School District if it continues the refurbishing of Lemon Grove Academy.
The district got a report of a feasibility study conducted by JRM Architectural recently. According to the firm, less electricity would be used with new refrigeration. Jim Murray, a representative of JRM told the board members his company could not analyze hot water heater options, district officials wrote district staff report.
JRM is also helping the district identify changes made to the building starting in 1965, Department of State Architecture (or DSA) requirements, and an estimated cost to correct DSA deficiencies and install new cold storage units, according to the report.
The school district has earmarked $454,000 from the sale of Series C to the project that they expected would be a summertime project, Dr. Gina Potter said.
The next step would be a tour of the facility and discussion at the August 24 board workshop, when items will be prioritized, Potter said. The district will need time to create and execute a bid, officials wrote.
