Voters approve Troy High School roof capital project
TROY, N.Y. >> Earlier this week, residents in the Troy City School District voted in favor of a capital project at Troy High School that will replace a portion of the roof over the classrooms.
District officials said that the fully-funded project will have no future tax impact on residents.
Officials said the entire cost of the classroom roof project is estimated to be $3,850,000. The public has authorized the expenditure of $577,500 from the Capital Reserve Fund.
The remaining $3.2 million will be borrowed in the form of a bond. The bond will be repaid over a 15-year period with State Aid funds.
“On behalf of the Board of Education, I would like to thank the Troy community for voting in support of this project,” said Superintendent John Carmello in a news release. “A vote for this project is one in support of our commitment to the safety of our students and staff and to the quality of our facilities.”
Construction on this portion of the roof is set to begin Summer 2019. Currently, the District is undertaking an emergency project to replace the roof over the high school gymnasiums as authorized by the New York State Education Department.
The District is working with Mosaic Associates Architects, an architecture firm the District has worked with on various Capital Projects in the past, including the Infrastructure Upgrade Capital Project and the Troy Middle School project.
