The Liberty Central School District Board of Education has proposed a revised capital project proposal that addresses the health and safety needs of the high school while remaining sensitive to district taxpayers.
The revised project has been tailored to reflect community feedback after the first vote.
The Board identified the most important items for inclusion in
the revote of the $9.6 million capital project with no tax impact.
The project will address aged infrastructure, energy efficiency,
and health and safety concerns.
Most of the proposed work addresses end-of-life items such as the high school’s exterior walls.
If the capital project is approved by voters, work should begin in January 2017 and end by December 2018. Key phases in the completion of the project will be announced in the near future.
Left unaddressed, the proposed work could lead to infrastructure failures, expensive maintenance and health and safety concerns. Emergency repairs do not qualify for state aid reimbursement so 100 percent of the cost.
The new project is 4 million less than the original proposal.
