Where We Live: Hamburg


Frontier Central School district is planning $100,000 in repairs in the high school in the next school year.

“There’s a set of terrazzo stairs in such bad repair they may have to be blocked off before the school year is over,” Superintendent Bret Apthorpe said.

He added there are exterior doors “that are rotting, they won’t stay shut,” because they are damaged from of the use of salt over the years.

He also said some doors won’t open because of heaving concrete in front of them.

Apthorpe said the district will be reimbursed for 79.4 percent of the cost of the repairs by state aid.
