Schools' roof, sewer line project mulled

A roof and sewer line renovation project with an estimated cost of $2.3 million for Pioneer Central middle and high school buildings is being considered.

Details of the work, including its financial impact, have yet to be determined, district officials said. The project would face a public vote.

School Superintendent Jeff Bowen said it is unlikely the vote would be held before the fall.

Gordon Jones Associates of Williamsville is preparing project plans, which need School Board approval before being put to a public vote.

Bowen said if the project is approved by voters, work likely would begin a year after the vote.

Bowen said the project would focus on repairing 40-year-old sewer lines connecting the middle/high school campus and fixing the middle school roof.

An estimated mile of sewer lines would be repaired, officials said. The sewer lines are connected to the Arcade sewage treatment plant in Wyoming County.

The district is likely eligible for state reimbursement of as much as 85 to 90 cents for every dollar spent, officials said.
