Dryden schools to vote on capital improvements

Next Monday, December 12th, voters in the Dryden Central School District will get to vote on proposals for improving school buildings, repaving the parking lot, and establishing a new capital fund:

Every five years, New York state requires all school districts to conduct a facilities condition survey, Superintendent Sandy Sherwood said. After all district buildings were inspected last year, the facilities advisory committee recommended the proposed projects to the school board, she said...

This proposition includes: sanitation upgrades, roof repairs, foundation masonry repairs, chimney and brick repointing, intrusion-detection systems, window replacements and exterior stair repairs.

All of the proposals are designed to have no effect or minimal effect on the immediate tax levy, relying on state funds and funds already saved for the purpose - except the third, which establishes a new fund for future projects five years out.
