The Mount Greylock School Committee for the second straight meeting failed to reach a decision on whether to accept the low bid to build a multipurpose building on the campus of the middle-high school.
The board had determined to move in that direction at last month's meeting but had held off on approving the $173,600 required for architects Perkins Eastman in Boston to develop planning documents and permitting for the building.
One thing that appears to finally be off the table is any solution for the district office that involves an existing "off-campus" building. District officials searched for more than a year to find a workable solution that did not involve new construction. Unfortunately, Bergeron said, any such structure would have involved costly modifications that made an existing property impractical at any price.
The Mount Greylock School Committee on Tuesday discussed acquiring a closed restaurant to be the new home of the district's administration.
The committee discussed a plan to use part of a $5 million capital endowment from Williams College to purchase the former Taconic Restaurant at the junction of Routes 2 and 7, across from the A-Frame Bakery.
