NR School Board approves demolition contractor

The New Richmond School Board approved a contract for construction with Eckert Wrecking Incorporated, out of Rhinelander, Wis., to demolish the old middle school at 421 S. Green Avenue during its Nov. 21 regular board meeting.

The school board also discussed their displeasure with the City of New Richmond's master plan draft for the old middle school property. However, the board said they will still accept a final master plan from the City if they come back to them at their December meeting with a plan that more closely adheres to the overall idea/goals of the old middle school property being used as a community space that best serves the interests of the district. 

To find out more about the demolition contract and the board's views on the City's master plan draft, see next week's New Richmond News for the full story.
