The schools within are about to get a little bit cleaner this year, thanks to a new custodial dilution control chemical system. The system, called Envirox Dilution Control, can be used to clean glass, grout, kitchen surfaces, floors and any number of other items within the school.
At its July 18 meeting, the District 159 Board of Education approved a bid from Performance Chemical to supply the district with the system, supplies and product for the system at a cost of $10,962.10. There was only one other bid for the project, from Lymander Building Services, Inc, which was substantially more than Performance's bid.
“The lowest bid is the best for the district,” said board member Patrick Markham. “Whatever is lowest is best for the schools.”
