Vot­ers ap­prove Troy High School roof cap­i­tal project

The Record (Troy, NY) - - LOCAL NEWS - By Record staff

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.
