Cold showers, frozen toilets lead to a slow burn at 696

by Tom Coombe
Ray Marsnik wanted answers and action Monday night.
The longtime chairman of the Ely School Board said the district has more to focus on - when it comes to school facilities - than a major improvement project that has been discussed for several months.
Marsnik instead called for the district to immediately address ongoing maintenance issues identified by members of the district’s facilities planning committee last month.
He said he was concerned and upset by reports that bathrooms in the Washington Elementary and Induistrial Arts buildings don’t have hot water, as well as annual issues related to a lack of hot water and frozen toilets in the girls locker room of the Memorial Building.
“I’m not pointing fingers,” said Marsnik. “I just know it’s a problem and I’d like to see it addressed.”
