DEXTER - Two new boilers are being installed this week at Dexter Regional High School at a cost of $177,440.Directors earlier this month approved a bid from ABM Mechanical Inc. of Charleston to do the boiler replacement. In addition, they awarded a bid of $30,000 for asbestos removal to R.J. Enterprise Inc. of Brunswick. This work has been completed.
The boilers and asbestos removal were funded through a $800,000 bond that district residents approved earlier this summer. The funds also are being used to do site and drainage work for parking at the high school and to complete the last stage of roofing at the Tri-County Technical Center.
