The Geneva school district will spend $140,200 to remove asbestos-containing material from the former Coultrap School, and $545,900 to tear the building down.

The school board Monday approved contracts for the work. Holian Asbestos and Encapsulation Corp. of Spring Grove was the low bidder for the asbestos work. Alpine Demolition of Batavia received the demolition contract. It was the second-lowest bidder, but the lowest bidder withdrew because it made a mistake in its calculations.

Asbestos removal will start next month, followed by demolition.

The cornerstone and 100 bricks will be saved, for possible use in a memorial or for fund-raising.

The school board also approved renaming the district headquarters to the Coultrap Educational Services Center.

Harry Coultrap was the first principal of the new Geneva High School when it opened in 1923, and then became district superintendent.
