The Knox County Board of Education will conduct a special-called meeting on Monday, January 11, to address the wastewater treatment plant at Flat Lick Elementary.
Previously, the Knox County Board and architect Summit Engineering, have addressed the need for a replacement treatment plant at the site. Prior district facility plans have identified the plant as one of the Board’s priority items. If the Board approves action on Monday night, they will authorize Superintendent Kelly Sprinkles to request waivers from the Kentucky Board of Education related to the Kentucky school facilities planning manual to permit a packaged wastewater plant. The Kentucky Board of Education will review the request and/or take action during its February meeting.
The meeting will be held at 6:45 pm in the Superintendent’s Office at the Board of Education (200 Daniel Boone Drive, Barbourville).
This meeting will be limited to a maximum of ten (10) people, including school board members and staff, pursuant to the Coronavirus Guidelines of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control; the 03/12/2020 Meeting Protocols for Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) issued by the Kentucky Finance and Administration Cabinet, KRS 61.810(1)(k), KRS 61.826, OAG 20-05 and SB 150. The meeting will be broadcast live and archived on the school district’s website.
