Presenter:  Mr. Craig Carter
Description:  Following the demolition of the existing West Bountiful Elementary building the contractor was left with considerably more soil than was anticipated.  During the construction of the parking lot, several wet spots were encountered which required excavation and replacement with structural fill.  The additional excavation cost used up the contingency built into the project’s GMP.  This meant that any minor changes that often come up during the course of construction would need additional money to complete. 
1.F.5. Sale of CTE Home Building Lots (exhibit) 
Presenter:  Mr. Craig Carter
Description:  Our CTE Home Building Program is evolving away from our traditional self-contained program where we buy the lot and build the home from start to finish, to our students working with existing home developers such as Ivory Homes.  As a result we are moving to sell our four existing home building lots.  We have full price offers on three of the four lots.  Tonight we ask for your approval to accept those three full price offers.  We also ask that you approve that we can sell the fourth building lot for no less than the asking price.  If we feel our best offer is less than the current asking price for the fourth lot, we will bring that offer back to the board for approval. Please refer any questions to Mr. Carter or Mr. Welk.
