HERE IS A PICTURE TAKEN MONDAY MORNING OF THE SMOKIN' PROGRESS UNDERWAY AT THE HIGH LAND PARK SCHOOL IN THE LAST 5 MONTHS
The story of the Highland Park school boondoogle was first posted on the Corrector on October 17, 2009. http://havredailycorrector.blogspot.com/2009/10/grandaddy-of-buy-at-home-boondoogles.html
I am sure everyone remembers the controversy about awarding the contract to an out of area taxpayer instead of one of our local school district taxpaying contractors that said he wanted to get started ASAP so he could be closed in before winter and give his crew employment in these economic hard times. I am sure our readers also remember that our Havre school board wanted the “very best” for the Havre School, which of course, can only be obtained through purchasing out of town with our in town tax dollars. Funny thing is though, here it is 5 months later and we have some little flags stuck in the ground. I am just glad Harvey and Shad from the board are on top of things or we would really be in trouble.
So much for our School boards claim to “getting’ er done” so they could get the project underway last fall. Maybe Harvey and Shad should get someone with more construction expertise to help them? Like Commissioner Anderson perhaps
