The Kaneland School Board approved a $4,000 engineering study to determine how best to deal with the soil stockpile located near the water tower at Kaneland High School.
Since the Elburn Herald reported on the need to remove the dirt pile, School District Superintendent Charlie McCormick said that the administration has been receiving calls from people in the area every day, offering to remove it for cost.
The range of estimates has varied widely, from $260,000 to $500,000. Board members agreed it was a good use of the money to conduct the study to determine the best method and cost.
The project will be placed out to public bid.
