The Lehighton Area School District held discussion about whether it should hire an independent construction manager for a proposed building project or have the contractor overlook the work.
No official action was taken, but for the district it should be a no-brainer.
The district should hire a construction manager.
Quandel Construction Group of Harrisburg made a pitch to Lehighton's school board claiming it could save the district around $2 million on $52 million worth of work.
"Corners are cut when nobody is watching," said John Koury, Quandel vice president.
