Rock Building Will Be District Office


It looks like the rock building at Julia Randall Elementary School will be used as administrative offices and a boardroom for the Payson Unified School District.

District Superintendent Casey O'Brien had asked for viable proposals for using the rock building from outside entities to be submitted to the district office by Oct. 15.

"We only received one RFP (request for proposal) by the deadline date and that one was rejected based on it not meeting the criteria of the RFP or the body of the proposal," O'Brien said.

He said board members made the decision to go ahead with a plan to use the building for administrative offices and a boardroom at the board meeting Oct. 16. SSPW Architects, based in Phoenix, was given the go-ahead by the board to prepare schematics and preliminary cost estimates for remodeling the rock building into offices and a boardroom.

"It's creeping up pretty quick on the Nov. 5 board meeting, so I'm pretty sure we won't have any schematics or preliminary estimates by then, but I would guess we would probably have them by mid-November," O'Brien said.
