South Adams Schools Superintendent Scott Litwiller said during this week's school board meeting that there have not been any bids submitted on the former Berne elementary school property.
Bidding was opened May 2 for the entire tract of real estate which totals 4.815 acres. Bidding will close at 3 p.m. on June 1. After the open bidding period ends, board members will hold a special meeting at 5:30 p.m. that day to review the bids and to possibly accept a bid.
The Adams Central school board authorized paying a $1,007,102.83 check for the school's construction and renovation project at the May meeting of the board, then heard a progress report from Barry Ehinger, the overseer of the work.
The money goes to Weigand Construction of Fort Wayne, prime contractor for the design-build project.
