General Contract Bid Is
Rejected at Meeting
Held Tuesday
Perquimans County Board of Edl
oauon meeting m - apeoat session
here last Tuesday afternoon, rejected
all bids offered for the general con
tract oft" the Hertford Negro school
addition and advertised for new gen
eral contract bids to be submitted by
two o'clock Friday afternoon. May
25, 1951. -:,v,'.-:,?
The action taken by the Board of
Education followed series of couH
Sultations with State School House
Planning Commissioners, and Archi
tect J. W. Griffin, who has charge of
the plans for the new addition to the
Hertford school. It was the opinion
of those consulted that bids submitted
last month for the project were exces
sive and should be rejected. Bifls,
however, for the electrical, plumbing
and heating jobs were found accept
able and contracts for this work will
e let to the' low bidders in these
fields, providing the new bids for the
general construction are iri line with
estimates set by the local board,
fiv Laws governing construction of
school buildings made it impossible
for the Board of Education to com
promise with the two low bidders on
the project, and it was, therefore, ne
cessary to reject tlje bids in order to
proceed with plans - for . the various
projects with the funds available for
construction. , f .: ,
- The Board of Education has appro
priated 65,000 for the construction
pf this addition to the Hertford Ne
gro school, which includes five new
class rooms and a combination lunch
room and library.':-, :,:;:,-!
It was reported the Board of Edu
cation plans, if the new bids are
ftund to be excessive, to reject all
bids for the addition, and call for
bids for the construction of the addi-

Final Payment Made ,
On Town Street Bonds
Final payment on 75,000 worth of
street bonds issued, by the Town of
Hertford in the early 1920's, was made
this week, accordiiur to W. Gl Newbv.
town ' clerk, who reported the final
payment on the street bonds totaled
1,000. V
The bonds were issued to raise
funds for paving of the town's streets,
and repayment of the funds has been
made over a period of the past 30
years.- . ;; . ;:
Mr. Newby also reported that the
present outstanding bonded indebted
ness of the Town of Hertford amount
ed to 75,000, which is money due for
improvements to the town plant and
electrical system, installed years ago.
Veto Appropriation
A savings of approximately 1,400
in the budget for the Town of Hert
ford for the next fiscal year was seen
in action taken by the new Town
Board in session here last Monday
night. The Board vetoed a request
for an appropriation of this amount
for the use of the District Health De
partment Since its organization, in 1942, the
Health Department has been support
ed by funds contributed by both Per
quimans County and the. Town of
Hertford. The county paying 75 per
cent of ' Perquimans' budget quota
while the town paid 25 per cent.
; The town's continued support of
the Health Department has been a
subject of discussion, at town board
meetings for the past several years,
and the action ' taken Monday was
Wed npoM.the ouinion that the Health
tion and. Us, unds- should come en
tirely f romycounty tax levies.
It was pointed out to the Town
Commissioners that Hertford is the
only city or town contributing to the
operation of the department, isasmuch
as Elizabeth City and Edenton, both,
last year withdrew payment toward
the department's operation. It was
also reported to the Board, insofar as
the State Board of Health regula
tions, the Town of Hertford, is not
recognized as a sustaining member of
the District Health Department, that
this recognition goes only to the four
counties comprising the district.
What effect this action, by the
Town Commissioners, will have on fu
ture operation "of the District Health j
Department remains to be seen; how-
ever, it is believed iixeiy the oiii-i
cials of the Department will call upon
Perquimans County to make up the
difference' previously paid by the
town. . . '
