We have three fronts that we are currently working on with regards to the bond. One is the process of getting our S&P bond rating so whoever is interested in buying the bonds knows the risk level. We are scheduled to find out the rating tomorrow sometime, which then allows for the sale of the bonds to proceed.
Second, we finished the architectural proposal reviews and firm interviews over the past week. HMK is now representing the district in a fee negotiation with our first choice with the goal being board approval in August.
Third, HMK is working with us to retain contractors who can do some required preliminary site evaluation surveys, namely hazardous materials and topographical surveys.
