The Enterprise City Schools Board of Education discussed a number of business and personnel actions during its regularly scheduled meeting Oct. 30.

The first item up for discussion was a corrective amendment of a grant of easement for Coppinville Junior High School. Board attorney L. Merrill Shirley updated the board on the need for a corrective amendment regarding Coppinville prior to Superintendent Greg Faught’s request for a resolution.

“You may not remember, but when Coppinville was being constructed, part of the construction involved getting highway access, and in order to create and provide access into the school premises, the state of Alabama Department of Transportation asked us to get the adjoining property on an easement, and we did that,” Shirley explained. “The district director had reviewed the previous grant and had asked that we put some broader language that would allow this easement to remain in effect if in fact the adjoining landowners should sell, transfer, or in some way convert the property. That’s what this corrective easement is. The easement is to be executed by the president and attested to by the vice president. It would require a motion to be made to allow our president to execute it and our vice president witness and execute this corrective grant of easement.”

The board voted to approve the corrective amendment for the grant of easement.

Next, Faught requested a salary schedule update for 2018-19. The proposed changes were said to be part of the miscellaneous pay raise and may affect the CNP payments for special functions; the board voted to approve the update on Faught’s recommendation.

Faught then requested the board award bids for a new computer numeric control, or CNC, wood cutting table. Faught recommended the bid be awarded to Wm. J. Redmond & Son in the amount of $28,000, and the board voted in favor of his recommendation.

The board also voted to add three additional slots for co-op students to the 22 that were approved last year.

A request to purchase five new trucks for the maintenance department was the next item up for discussion.

“Our maintenance department is currently operating in several vehicles that are anywhere from 15 to 20 years old, and our maintenance department was able to budget for these vehicles, so it is my recommendation that you approve the purchase of five new trucks from Ed Sherling Ford in the amount $34,595.43 each. This is the same price that we purchased trucks last year,” Faught said.

The board voted to approve the purchase.

Finally, one facility use agreement, four employee out of state trip requests, several trip requests from schools, and three athletic schedules were approved as one consent agenda item.
