May Call For New School Bids By March Cliff Prall, Des Moines, architect for the proposed new public high school here, gave the school board, Supt. 0. B. Laing and Principal Elgin Allen, all present at a meeting here Tuesday night, something to think about when he presented recommendations for construction of the building during a lengthy session. Mr. Prall, whose trips here are becoming more numerous as work on drawings of the structure approach completion, said during the meeting that a late March, 1968, letting of contracts is still a possibility. Original goal for the nearly $2,000,000 school was for completion and occupancy in the fall of 1970. Land leveling and preparatory work is expected to begin sometime late next spring or early summer. The board set the afternoon of Jan. 10 as a tentative meeting date at which time there will te more discussion on school architecture. Prall reviewed floor scale, roof levels and exterior and interior materials Tuesday night. Preliminary plans call for an exterior of varied dark brick, exposed steel, painted withepoxy paint to match one of the colors of brick and large bronze-tinted windows in varied areas - with the general design, brick, etc., to continue inside the structure. While samples of material were shown to the board, it was pointed out that they need not be the final choices, except that they conform to the architect's ideas on how the building should appear. The materials selected by Prall feature a low maintenance cost, also important in any construction. Inside the building, suggestions included terrazo floors in the corridors (featuring a predominately light and colorful pattern) and carpet in some rooms, including the library, language labs, etc. Upkeep on carpet is said to Ixj less than on other types of surfaces. Final item brought up by Mr. Prall was the heating and cooling system required to best serve sucli a building. The board had many questions on the subject, and Mr. Prall admitted he did not have all of the facts needed to give an honest comparison between gas and electric heating and cooling systems, including original cost and cost of operation. It was suggested that Algona Municipal Utilities and North Central Public Service Co. here be contacted, given all necessary information on size, space to be heated and cooled, etc., then allowed to make a presentation for their products. Prall did comment that utility rates here are good. Upcoming sessions with Prall will include much more information and review of past information on the proposed building. His next visit with the board will be called at a time when he feels the entire plan is nearer completion. It will be sometime in January.
