Cabool High School’s “C” building should be coming down the first week of October, following the approval Monday evening of a bid for demolition.
Cabool Board of Education sought bids for the demolition of the building, which has been unsafe for occupancy for the past three years.
Four bids from area contractors were received for the removal of the building, ranging from $20,600 to $42,500. The school board approved the lowest bid of $20,600 from Dotson Excavating of Cabool.
School maintenance director Chris Reese said plans are to save as much rock as possible from the building’s exterior. The rock could then be used in future building projects.
Reese said tentative plans are for the demolition to be done the first full week of October. This will allow time for the district to remove the final items in the building, he said. Asbestos and lead paint have already been removed in preparation for the demolition.
