The quality of your child's education can be reflected in the quality of our facilities.
We are dedicated to keeping the condition of our buildings and grounds in top shape. Doing that can be costly and every dollar we spend on capital up-keep counts.
We know how important our accountability of that spending is to the Eaton Rapids community. We hope you’ll find here all the information you need about what we’re doing, how much we’re spending and where the money is coming from.
After all, these are your schools and we are using your tax dollars to do the work.
We Are ER!
Work Begins on Replacing HS Boilers
May 22, 2017
ERPS HS - Demolition work has started on our summer-long project to replace the high school boilers. The work is being done by Pleune Service Company and will be paid for with money collected through a sinking fund passed last year.
Two of the boilers at the high school have been in operation since the school was built in 1964. They have needed expensive repairs in recent years and it is no longer cost effective to keep them in operation.
The boiler replacement project will require the partial demolition and reconstruction of the school’s boiler room to remove the current boilers and replace them with high-efficiency modern boilers. Work is expected to last through July. The project is expected cost $603,680.
This is the first major capital improvement project paid for by the one-mill sinking fund approved by district voters last May. The district has already collected more than $300,000 for the repairs and is expected to collect the rest when summer taxes are collected in July. The five-year millage is expected to raise about $2.5 million dollars. Future work includes extensive roof repair, parking lot repair, improvements to campus lighting, and repairs to sports facilities.
