Servco Equipment Co. of St. Louis was chosen as the low bidder to provide food service equipment for Jackson's new elementary school Tuesday night. The school board approved the bid of $325,447 during a special meeting. Superintendent Ron Anderson says the food service equipment will include items such as serving and cooking equipment, stoves, ovens, containers, refrigerators and utensils. The general contractor, Brockmiller Construction of Farmington is ready to rough out plumbing for the 105,000-square-foot building, so the new food service equipment needs to be in hand. The elementary school will sit on 15 acres on N. Lacey St. Construction is being financed with a bond of about $16 million that was approved by voters April 3, 2012.
