The Hays CISD board has decided on one architectural firm for projects within its proposed 2020 bond election but won’t make a decision on a second company later.
Trustees approved O’Connell Robertson Architects for bond election projects. The board had approved the company for “future architectural services” in 2018 for fees ranging from 5 to 7 percent.
However, the board held off on making a decision about Claycomb Associates Architects. According to district spokesman Tim Savoy, the district is still waiting on some initial design and pricing information from the company, which is scheduled to make a presentation at the Nov. 7 meeting of the Facilities & Bond Oversight Committee (FBOC).
The bond election would be held in May and could possibly ask voters to approve more than $213 million in spending to include one new elementary school and expansions and renovations at other campuses as well as improvements at Shelton Stadium and Lehman and Johnson high schools.
Public hearings on the proposals are expected to begin in late January or early February of 2020.
