Another speaker requested that the board make a cost estimate for the busing of students from Pontiac Heights. o o The board authorized the transfer of $17,821.66 from the contingency fund to cover the additional cost for relocating and repairing the required number of portable classrooms for the 1970-71 year. o o i An easement was granted by the board to the Michigan Bell Telephone Co. on the Pioneer High School site to allow the placement of equipment. o o Approval of Beckett, son, Raeder, Inc., to develop a master site plan for Hurón I High School was made by the board.
