Westfield Schools Receiving Bids on Roofs

Contractors' bids will be opened on March 26.

The following is a press release from the Westfield School District: 

On February 21, the Westfield Public School District began the bidding process for roof replacements on Westfield High School, Roosevelt Intermediate School and Washington Elementary School. Contractors’ bids, which will be opened on March 26, will represent specified work to take place during the summer of 2013.

District architects have determined that Westfield High School, Roosevelt Intermediate School and Washington Elementary School are in most need of immediate roof replacement and repairs. The remainder of the District’s school buildings will undergo roof work in the summer of 2014. 

“Our goal is to have construction occur in the summer, when students are not in school,” explained Superintendent of Schools, Margaret Dolan. “The timing of the December 2012 bond makes it possible for a maximum of three of our schools to be worked on this summer. The High School project is particularly large and the need imminent.”

“I am grateful for the public’s approval of our bond and will provide updates of the progress of the work as it develops,” added Dr. Dolan.

Remember it is the taxpayers who voted to grant you this bond in order to fix our roofs. Since the teacher contract negotiation is starting as well as the budget planning remember to make sure the town sees 0% increases for both. Our taxes are already going up as a result of the bond we CANNOT and WILL NOT afford anymore. NOT even the 2% cap allowed by law. Now is the time for the BOE to show their thanks and that they can finally be fiscally responsible.
