District 518 seeking quotes for Prairie Elementary foundation repair

WORTHINGTON -- District 518 is seeking quotes to repair the foundation at Prairie Elementary.

"We're experiencing some block that's falling apart," Superintendent John Landgaard said. "It's one of those things. I don't know if it's design or whatever, but we're having some foundation issues in a few spots that we're aware of. We are going to try to correct that."

The issue is where the concrete meets the building in certain places.

"The salt that's used or whatever else is deteriorating that block," Landgaard said.

Quotes will be accepted until Aug. 29. As far as cost, Landgaard said, "I have no clue honestly. I don't have an number to have an idea of what it might cost."

The matter has already been discussed in an operations meeting. According to Landgaard, the safety of students and staff is not being jeopardized.

"It's not a safety concern whatsoever," he said. "It's one of those things we've found that we want to get fixed before we have big problems."
