VOTE TO BE HELD ON UPGRADES

Voters in the Wilson Central School District will get the chance to decide whether to spend $1.7 million on various projects, including the renovation of classrooms.

The vote will be held from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Oct. 11 in the R.J. Zipp Athletic Center in the middle/high school.

The projects include:

Renovating homes and careers classrooms into regular classrooms;

Relocating the home and careers center to the middle-high school building;

Upgrading the fire-alarm system;

Rehabilitating the high school parking lot and providing lighting; and

Repointing the exterior masonry of the high school.

District officials said the work would result in no tax increase and would be funded through the district's capital reserve fund.

The district also is eligible to receive a state-aid reimbursement of 85.2 percent.

Work would begin after the district receives approval for the work from the state Education Department, possibly by next summer, officials said.

The School Board will hold public meetings on the issue at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Middle School Library/Media Center and 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in the W.H. Stevenson Elementary School Cafeteria.
