The hope from the board in entering into a contract with the group is to get more funds for facility repairs, upkeep and construction. The advisors group proposed preparing eligibility forms for various sources of funding. Capitol Advisors Group sent an agreement to the district asking for a one-year contract. PUSD board members edited the contract to end June 30. In both edits, the cost for Capitol Advisors Group's services is $3,000 per month plus travel expenses not to exceed $1,000 per month. Either party can terminate the agreement with 30 days notice. The day earlier, Capitol Advisors Group emailed the school board members rejecting the edits. "I'm a little concerned we aren't on the same page yet," said Edlund. "l want to make sure we're speaking the same language." Director Chris Russell expressed the need to sign an agreement before funding opportunities vanish. "If this leads to shovel-ready projects, it'll be worth it. We keep throwing money into these facilities and it's killing us," Russell said. Board members concurred they wanted to partner with the group, but were not read3 to accept the terms of the original contract. "They are willing to work with us," Miglis told the board.
