Nelson County prepares to sell OKH Intermediate

By Erin L. McCoy

The Nelson County School Board Tuesday rejected all bids for construction of a new preschool that would centralize district childcare services in the former Central Office building. A combination of the lowest bids totaled about $300,000 more than the original budget of $2.7 million, superintendent Anthony Orr said.

Architects Studio Kremer will return to the design of the project to see where changes in the design — such as selecting more cost-effective materials — may bring future bids closer to budget, board member Nicky Rapier said.
