Did they get any competetive bids?
Let's see them!
Why a new 2 story building for 43 million?I thought it was for maintenance!
How many more students are enrolled compared to last year?
$50,000.00 to clean the gutters?


Thanks for voting on another rip off for PV taxpayers!

It was rigged from the start I suspect. No competitive bids is a huge red flag. New building? When did the community see the plans? Where was the COMMUNITY input. I thought this was suppose to be for maintenance?

Don't miss out on the discussion!
