A pair of 50-year-old boilers that power the heating and hot water systems at Kiel High School will have to be replaced immediately.

At Wednesday’s meeting of the Kiel Area Board of Education, Kiel High School head custodian Aaron Kissinger informed the board that one of the boilers is currently out of commission, and the second boiler has been plagued by leaks that automatically cause it to shut off multiple times overnight.

By a 4-3 vote, the Board authorized Kissinger to seek additional bids for the replacement of the boilers, beyond an estimate already provided by Mannenbach Mechanical Services. The board also authorized Dr. Brad Ebert, KASD administrator to make an decision on how to proceed within a week.

Those dissenting on the vote favored replacing the boilers immediately, and did not wish to wait a week.
