Superintendent Jim Widdifield gave the Minden Public Schools Board of Education an update on demolition progress of the district owned house at 509 W. 5th during the February 10 meeting.
The original part of the house dates back to 1896 making asbestos a consideration in the demolition. Widdifield reported the asbestos removal has been completed and an inspection will be completed later in the week.
The district received two bids for the demolition project. The bids were very competitive with only a minimal difference in price. The board opted to approve the bid from A & L Leveling Inc. for $12,775, the lower of the bids.
