CCS Capital Improvement Project goes to voters Dec. 11

The Cooperstown Central School Board of Education approved its 2014 Capital Improvement Project at a meeting on Oct. 16 and will now present the referendum to the voters on Wed. Dec. 11. 

Proposition No. 1 for district wide capital improvement project, will allow CCS to borrow up to $6,609,000 for a long list of improvements to its elementary school on Walnut St. and Middle/High School and bus garage on Linden Ave.

The resolution passed 5-0 with Andrew Marietta, David Borgstrom, Mary Leonard, Marcy Birch and Theresa Russo voting yes. Anthony Scalici and Jean Schifano were not present. 

Among the improvements are new carpets, repaving at both schools, asbestos abatement at the elementary school, a bigger parking lot and drop off lane at the elementary school, an autism class bathroom and improvements to a music and technology wing at the middle/high school. 

The money will be initially borrowed and then bonded with repayment over a 15-year period. The expected cost to property owners is an extra 19 to 20 cents per $1,000.
