Bay board holds special meeting

ESCANABA — The Bay College Board of Trustees is set to vote on proposed changes to the scope and cost of an infrastructure project at the college next week.

“The bottom line is, we’re reducing — significantly — the size of the project,” Bay College President Laura Coleman said.

In a special meeting held Wednesday afternoon, the board entered closed session to hear a legal opinion from the college’s attorney. The opinion was related to adjustments to the infrastructure project, which the college is working on along with Johnson Controls, Inc.

According to Coleman, no formal decisions were made after the board exited closed session. Board members will officially vote on proposed adjustments to the college’s contract with Johnson Controls in the near future.

“The board will make a decision of approval next week at the board meeting,” Coleman said.

The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 16.
