ACT TO APPROVE DISPOSAL OF TWO UNSAFE PORTABLES AT VILLAGE SCHOOL (Mr. Etter)

Complaints were received regarding mold in two storage rooms at Village School site. During an investigation, visible mold was found in the walls and carpet throughout both portable buildings. The JPA tested the portables and results showed high concentrations of mold particles in both portables.

In accordance with Education Code 17546(c), if the governing board, by a unanimous vote of those members present, finds that the property is of insufficient value to defray the costs of arranging a sale, the property may be donated or it may be disposed of.

Upon approval by the board, a company by the name All County Environmental & Restoration will be selected to properly dispose of the portables.

The recommended action is for the board to authorize the disposal of two portable buildings for safety purposes.
