Margarethe Schurz School



03 22          There will be no shortage of bidders for the new elementary school to be constructed in the Seventh Ward which is to be known as the Margarethe Schurz School, it was indicated today following an announcement at last night’s meeting of the Board of Education that eight general contractors have thus far qualified for filing bids which are to be opened at 8 p.m. on April 10.  In addition to the eight general contractors, there are ten mechanical contractors who have qualified.  These represent either heating or plumbing concerns or both.  There also are five electrical contractors who have qualified.  “If all of these contractors file bids, as now expected, we should have quite a field from which to choose the most favorable bidders,” a spokesman for the board said last night.  “We will not have a shortage of bidders as was the case on the high school addition project when the field of bidders was very limited.”  WDT
