Eden Central School District residents will vote Feb. 16 on a scaled-back $2.82 million technology project one year after voters overwhelmingly rejected a more elaborate $5.6 million proposal.
The new proposal calls for linking the three schools and building computer labs in each of the school libraries instead of adding new computers to classrooms. The high school business and technology departments also would be upgraded. Wiring improvements, sound system upgrades and a public-address system would complete the project.
Administrators say the project will not cost taxpayers money because of 88.2 percent state aid reimbursement and its twinning with a proposed energy-savings project that would pick up any tab that otherwise would have been charged to taxpayers for the bond.
Voting will be from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Feb. 16 in the Eden Junior-Senior High School lobby. The School Board also has scheduled a public information session on the project at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 9 in the high school auditorium on
