rigging repairs approved for summit high school stage
The Summit High School Auditorium stage will cost $18,500 for emergency repairs.
But because the replacement would cost about $100,000, and without some action, the spring production at high school would not be possible, and the Education Commission voted to approve the repair at a special workshop, the agenda of the meeting has been changed for action.
The board voted to approve the proposal for a stage lamp light and rigging at the center of PA Allentown.
\"The replacement will be a very big job, about $100,000,\" said Eleanor Doyle, a member of the Board of Education . \".
Short term repairs are cheaper and can be repaired in time for high school spring production.
\"The lowest bidders have the best references,\" said Nathan Parker, head of the school . \".
The bid was between $18,500 and $24,000, which he called \"stop --gap measure.
Louis Pepe, business administrator, is also bullish on the vendor.

The process is labor-intensive, including the use of sandbags, Pepe added.
Other bids came from Freehold northeast stage and Syracuse landscape stage lighting. , Inc.
From Liverpool, New York.
\"It will cost thousands of dollars to replace the rigging,\" he said . \".
