A proposed $18.5 million Capital Project was presented at the district’s April 11 Board of Education meeting. The project calls for district wide safety and security improvements, renovations to classroom spaces, infrastructure upgrades and improvements to shared community facilities.
“It has been quite some time since we have made such an investment in our facilities,” said Superintendent Joseph Hochreiter. “Now is the time to take advantage of low interest rates, retiring debt and high New York State reimbursement rates.” The $18.5 million project will not increase the tax levy, as the district prepares to retire significant debt over the next 10 years. Additionally, the state will reimburse the district for 31% of the entire project.
A vote to approve the bond for the proposed project will take place at the same time as the upcoming Budget Vote, on May 15 at Frank G. Lindsey Elementary School, from 7:00 am to 9:00 pm.
