VOTERS TO DECIDE ON RENOVATION PROJECT

Residents here will decide Tuesday to whether the Wilson Central School District should spend $2 million to reconstruct and renovate the Middle/High School.

Voting will be from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. in the Richard J. Zipp Athletic Center at the rear of the High School.

If voters decide to approve the plan, it would allow the district to replace the heating and ventilation system and update its energy management system in the building, proceed with asbestos abatement, replace a deteriorated steel beam in a crawl space, restore some masonry and upgrade some classrooms.

There would be no tax increase, because the project would be funded through a capital reserve fund, with 82.5 percent state reimbursement.

If it is approved by the voters, the district will then have to receive approval from the state Education Department.

The district is expecting that approval no later than next summer.
