UPDATE -- The Capital Project vote passed 183-77. Superintendent Charles Chaffee says once the bids go out for the project, work will begin in June of 2021.

WATERVILLE, N.Y. – The Waterville Central School District will vote Thursday on a capital project that includes updates for energy efficiency in school buildings.

The project proposes new roofing for the elementary school and bus garage, as well as new field turf and interior lighting at the Junior/Senior High School.

The proposed improvements would cost just under $13 million.

If the project is approved, 86.4% of project costs will be covered by state building aid, which is provided to districts for facility needs.

The proposal includes a contribution of $1.1 million from taxpayers, which equates to $15-$28 per year on a $100,000 home.

However, this increase will be off set by the Waterville Central School District’s comprehensive long range planning, which plans for new debt to begin when existing debt is paid off ; resulting in a zero increase over the life of the project.

The full project plan can be viewed on the district's website: watervillecsd.org.

Voting will take place through 8 p.m.
