U-E Asking Voters to Approve $7 Million Project
10/17/2013 (Updated 11:10:33 PM)The Union-Endicott School District is asking its residents to approve a 7-million dollar project to make updates and improvements to its schools.
A majority of that will be covered by state aid, but on December 10th, voters will decide whether or not to approve spending a one-time payment of 700-thousand dollars from the district's capital reserve.
In addition around 100-thousand dollars needed for the project will result in a property tax increase only in the 2016-2017 school year.
"The community takes a lot of pride in their buildings here in Union-Endicott. This is a way with a minimal financial impact to the community of making sure that we keep up our end of the bargain by making sure our community has facilities that are in very good condition," said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Suzanne McLeod.
The wide ranging project includes upgrades to the clocks and phone systems along with new doors and security systems such as intruder locks. All the information on the referendum is on the district's website.
