HOWARD LAKE, WAVERLY, WINSTED, MN – A playweb net, swings, slides and other recreational equipment purchases for the middle school/high school campus were approved at last Monday’s Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted School Board meeting.
The school negotiated pricing with two companies over the past month. The entity chosen, Midwest Playscapes in Chaska, provided a quote of $74,300.
Flagship Recreation (partnering with Landscape Structures in Delano) provided a quote of just under $87,000, which was over the board’s maximum of $80,000.
“We’ve had very good experiences with both companies, and we feel the two drawings [of playground equipment] are as equal to each other as we could possibly get,” Superintendent Brad Sellner said.
Board members Paul Bravinder, Lacy Detlefsen, Dwayne Diers, Joanie Lasiuk, and Jamie Wiech voted in favor, and Board Member Charles Bush voted opposed. Board Member Michelle Heuer abstained.
