Jackson County DHR is set to move into Brownwood Elementary School on Oct. 1, and the Scottsboro City Schools Board of Education is getting ready for the move.

At its regular meeting on Wednesday afternoon, the board approved bids for painting, carpet, installation and base molding for the leased portion of Brownwood.

The bid for painting was awarded to Oakley’s Painting and Remodeling in Florence for $39,200. The bid for carpet, installation and base molding was awarded to Kimberly Ann’s Flooring for $62,276.50. DHR will reimburse the school system for these costs.
