James G. Murphy Co. will hold a public auction of surplus equipment in the old Shorewood at 10am on Wednesday, June 26, 2013. Preview begins at 8am. More information at the company website.

Surplus items include culinary arts kitchen equipment, fitness equipment and school furnishings such as student and teacher desks, chairs and lockers.

With the transition to the new school facility, the current Shorewood High School offices and facilities will be closed to the public between June 24 and 30 while staff packs and moves the school.

Demolition of the old Shorewood is expected to begin the week of July 1.

The new Shorewood administrative offices will open Aug. 12, but the remainder of the building will be closed to the public prior to the opening of school Sept. 4, 2013.

Look at all the perfectly good furniture that has been deemed not worthy of the new school. When next the Superintendent comes to the City Council with hat in hand, do not believe it. When next a department head holds a fund raiser, do not believe it. The rest of the city has had to make do. This is extravagance.

It's cheaper to design and build a building by installing new equipment than to pay to design, build, remove, move, and re-install old equipment...some of which is more than 30 years old, and is sure to break down. Although I would agree that tables and chairs, those should be reused.
