CLENDENIN, W.Va. — The Kanawha County Board of Education unanimously approved Lewis County based Doss Enterprises LLC’s $19.7 million bid for site preparation work on the new Herbert Hoover High School.
The 5-0 motion came Monday morning during a special session meeting to get the ball rolling on work in the Givens Fork area for the school destroyed in the June 2016 floods.
Chuck Smith, the Kanawha County Schools Facilities Planning Executive Director said at the meeting he expects work to begin by the end of the year into January, after a 10-day notification period of approval is complete.
“They will begin by clearing the site, providing all the environmental and stormwater management controls on it. We have to locate part of the stream there to meet the DEP requirements,” Smith told the media.
