LCSD plans use of re­main­ing cap­i­tal funds

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

TROY, N.Y. >> The Lans­ing­burgh Cen­tral School Dis­trict said it is propos­ing ad­di­tional vi­tal improvements to their school build­ings.

The dis­trict in­tends to use the re­main­ing funds from the 2015 Turn­pike El­e­men­tary School (TES) Cap­i­tal Pro­ject.

The Dis­trict said it com­pleted the TES Pro­ject un­der bud­get, which means the fund­ing for the pro­posed ad­di­tional improvements would come at no cost to the Dis­trict tax­pay­ers.

Dis­trict of­fi­cials said the pro­posed improvements would come at a max­i­mum cost of $1,157,369, the amount re­main­ing from stay­ing un­der bud­get on the TES Pro­ject.

Qual­i­fied vot­ers of the Dis­trict will de­cide on this use of funds for school build­ing improvements in a vote sched­uled for Tues­day, Jan­uary 15, 2019.

Of­fi­cials said the vote is early in 2019 so the Dis­trict can put out bids for the improvements and com­plete them over the sum­mer of 2019.

Dis­trict tax­pay­ers must vote to ap­prove the pro­posed ad­di­tional improvements since they were not in­cluded in the orig­i­nal Cap­i­tal Pro­ject vote pro­posal.

In re­ceiv­ing voter ap­proval for these ad­di­tional improvements, the Dis­trict said they can claim Build­ing Aid on the ex­pended funds.

These im­prove­ment projects would be re­im­bursed by the state at 90%. The re­main­ing 10% would be off­set through the orig­i­nal TES pro­ject.

Pro­posed improvements at no cost to tax­pay­ers in­clude:

• Build­ing and re­ha­bil­i­tat-

ing a se­cure en­try­way vestibule for Rens­se­laer Park El­e­men­tary, to match the work al­ready done at Turn­pike El­e­men­tary.

• Roof­ing re­pairs and re­con­struc­tion for the Knicker­bocker Mid­dle School and Lans­ing­burgh High School
