It's funny how one quack recognizes another!
fatherof5: 1: If they had a generating building, maintenance budget they wouldn't be asking for a new bond every year. 2: If there is a new HVac replaced the ducting is not. 99.9% of the time the ducting outlasts the structure. 3: If the District is lacking in leadership to the point of replacing a large unit on a building and then turn around to replace the structure in a short time - the leadership had better be replaced instead of the structure. Have a nice day.
You were stating taking 50 yr old boilers and turning them into new ones. Proper maintenance (I'm not talking about maintenance personnel that mow the lawn - I'm talking large equipment techs) would have them replaced. This is done through daily and monthly maintenance. I've been there and done that. This is money that is accrued over the years from the day it was built.
Your not sticking to the issue of why not start off with a new Science building? Why does the District have to have a whole new complex? Your jumping around on me and now running over the context of my post. I guess this subject is way to difficult to try and get a clear answer.
I was taking into consideration any entity that has the overseers (example: a Corporation such as Key Tech which has high tech equipment does not bulldoze the entire machine shop when one piece of equipment gets wore out they replace it) and there are plenty in the school district to monitor and a lot of this should have been taken care of years ago as the complex deteriorated. I don't see the complexity of my questions other than the fact that people don't want to take one project at a time.
You were asking which people to lay off - try a few in the upper echelon and in a few short years you would have a healthy maintenance fund. :)
Don't get me wrong - I wasn't even thinking of the lawsuit but I was speaking in terms of consideration for ones property.
Now about the Rose bush - My wife has a few of them and that poor kid probably had a tough time without help getting thorns out. I know even with leather gloves on. All I can say is OUCH!
Very good editorial! But I didn't see a word about CO2 emissions from human sources? Unbelievable?
fatherof5 - lets try to stay focused. I'm talking since this campus was built they have had a maintenance department. Those maintenance departments have daily or monthly logs on all large equipment (every company and even households(yearly)) to evaluate inspections on that large equipment. After a period of time those logs should determine the wear and tear on that equipment. When it gets to a certain point a request or notice should be made to either rebuild or replace that piece of equipment. At this point monies should have been set aside for either or rebuild - replace. If this criteria is not in place that shows a total lack of leadership.
Now if you want to talk about a new Science building? Why not try to pass a bond for that project instead of the whole campus. Just because my bride (of multiple years) wants an add-on to a kitchen or living room I'm not going to rebuild the whole house. When will common sense prevail?
So another words - I will proceed and I will always have Mother Nature on my side! Much to your lack of knowledge.
A lot of people (not just children) have no consideration for private property. Point well taken.
With the money that the School District accumulates (I'm not talking about education funds) where is the money that funds maintenance and upkeep? Are these people so naive that they think these properties magically revamp themselves over time? A lot of money goes to the District which seems to have this vanishing effect without accomplishing much. Questions - Questions - Questions???
paco - just can't let the kid rest in peace? The case your referring to: the person had broken into a business establishment(robbery), had stolen property on his person(fleeing a crime) and unfortuately suffered the consequences! Case closed!
