>Voters will decide on school improvements
FREWSBURG -- Voters in the Frewsburg Central School District will decide today on a $4.1 million capital project that will not increase local property taxes. Superintendent Steve Vanstrom said Expanding Our Children's Education and Learning (EXCEL) aid from the state is available for the project, which will eliminate the need to increase local property taxes.
Vanstrom said the aid will supplement the 92.6-percent state aid the district is already eligible for to deal with several items.
Areas to be addressed include roofing, security, electrical systems and improving handicapped accessibility.
