Raising questions on school project

Posted

Dear Cranston School Committee members:

As you are the governing body of the Cranston School Department, I have a few questions and concerns that I would like to bring to your attention for clarification and responses.

The question I have is, with full knowledge that the Garden City Elementary School was being fully renovated with an entire new complex, why would the Cranston School Committee authorize spending hundreds of thousands of dollars or more on, but not limited to, the following?

Installing new fire suppression system?

Installing new ceilings?

Installing new lighting?

Installing new gas burners?

Does the School Committee maintain oversight of the Cranston School Department?

Does the School Committee hold the Cranston School Department accountable for fiscal responsibility?

If necessary, why wasn’t a waiver applied for the fire suppression system?

In closing, I would hope that the Cranston School Committee understands the ramifications and further waste of taxpayer funds and does not authorize the removal of ceiling tiles and lighting by employees for “stock” and place in storage!

I look forward to your responses in writing.
