At Monday's Pottawatomie County Board of County Commissioners meeting, the board approved Wanette Schools to purchase a new HVAC system.

The project was awarded to Air Force 1 A/C & Heating, L.L.C., in Tecumseh for a total cost of $18,896.56.

According to an e-mail from Wanette Superintendent Sylvia McNeely, three other bids were submitted but two were vague in their description and the other had done work previously that was not satisfactory.

Wanette Schools will use funds available to the district from the county's education sales tax.

In other commission news:

T&T Watertight will do an inspection of the courthouse, and locate all the cracks in the masonry and the give an estimate for silicone sealant and limestone and marble protector for various spots in the courthouse.

The inspection will determine if the county needs to go out for bid for sealing various spots at the courthouse.

District 2 declared an HP Laser printer and plans to donate it to either Macomb or Wanette School, Commissioner Randy Thomas said.
