Montrose board discusses library project

As construction of the Montrose branch of the Susquehanna County Library progresses on land leased by the Montrose Area School District, the school board discussed several updates at the Monday, Jan. 9 meeting.
It was determined the facility would need three-phase electric instead of the existing two-phase service. Superintendent Carol Boyce told the board a new pole needed to be installed and the district needed to grant an easement for it.
The installation of the pole was at no cost to the district, she said.
The board also approved a memorandum of understanding that would allow the library to access the high school’s internet bandwidth for improved wireless service. An antenna will be installed on the school – again, there will be no cost to the district.
Technology committee chair Karl Wimmer said that with district’s expanded service, the school’s usage would not be hampered by the library also using the bandwidth.
The board also discussed a maintenance request from the library for plowing and mowing.
Board members discussed that there could be potential liability issues in doing that and will check with the insurance company before rendering a decision.
Boyce also said the maintenance department cares for three facilities and noted the department’s limited staff.
