Consultant to oversee Ascension Parish school rebuilding
Posted September 14
GONZALES, La. — The Ascension Parish School Board has picked CSRS, a Baton Rouge firm, to oversee rebuilding flood-damaged school buildings and seeking FEMA reimbursement dollars.
Chad Lynch, director of planning and construction for Ascension Parish schools, told board members at a special meeting Tuesday, CSRS was recommended by a selection panel of school district administrators.
The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/2cqQmTZ) a contract with CSRS will be negotiated in the coming weeks.
About $6 million of flood-remediation work by three national contractors at three primary schools, a middle school and a high school, as well as the district's distribution center in Sorrento, is drawing to a close and the district is looking at the next phase of recovery.
