Pine Valley Central School to hold capital project vote

SOUTH DAYTON – Pine Valley Central School District will hold a public vote on their proposed Capital Improvement Project on Tuesday.

The proposed Capital Improvement Project is designed to address important repairs, renovations and improvements to district buildings and grounds that will improve safety and security at the school and enhance instructional programs. Much of the project includes cost-saving energy upgrades, instructional improvements, and state-mandated health and safety requirements. “Pine Valley is committed to providing a safe learning environment and well-maintained facilities for students and public use,” says Interim Superintendent James Przepasniak. “We need to take care of the most important asset the community owns and I believe this Capital Improvement Project is the most fiscally responsible way to do that.”

The total cost of the proposed Capital Improvement Project is $9,887,212. If approved by voters, the project will have no additional tax impact. It will be funded by a combination of State Aid and the District’s capital reserves. If the vote does not pass, the work will still be required but it will not be eligible for State Aid. Instead, it will have to be funded within the annual District budget with local tax payers bearing the full cost.

The capital project vote will be held on Tuesday, November 12, from Noon to 9 p.m. at Pine Valley Jr./Sr. High School in the New Gym Foyer.

To be eligible to vote, you must be a US citizen, 18 years or older and have been a District resident for at least 30 days prior to the vote. No pre-registration is required.
