CEDARBURG — Things continue to move forward with the many projects being done within the Cedarburg School District.

The Cedarburg Board of Education last Wednesday approved a number of bids as part of the $59.8 million in upgrades throughout the district, made possible by an approved referendum in April.

These are the following approved bids:

■ An electrical bid for the Parkview and Thorson Elementary Schools’ project from Lemburg Electric Co. for $1,277,850.

■ A masonry bid for the Parkview and Thorson Elementary School’s project from Superior Masonry Builders for $898,720.

■ A masonry bid for the Cedarburg High School and Westlawn Elementary School project from Artaega for $1,398,500.

■ A miscellaneous metals bid for the Cedarburg High School and Westlawn Elementary School projects from Endres for $194,400.

All bids were below budget except for the miscellaneous metals bid, which had a budget of $168,650.

The major pillars of the Long Range Master Plan continue to be learning spaces, school capacity and safety and security, according to Superintendent Todd Bugnacki.

“Those are the three things that continue to drive us in the work we do every day,” he said.

It was reported that construction work is approximately 90 percent bid out and fixtures, furnishings and equipment still needed to bidded out. As of last Wednesday the board was told they are on budget with the projects.

The board was also updated on the progress of the projects in all of the schools.

There will be a special board meeting at an undetermined date to review and take action on other bids for things such as fire protection, plumbing, HVAC, studs and drywall, landscaping, electrical and aluminum and glass.
