Dundee School capital project goes to voters June 6th

Voters in the Dundee Central School District will approve or turn down a proposed capital improvement program that includes renovations to the bus garage, roof replacement, and security improvements to the main school facility. The cost of the project is $7.7 million.

The vote will be held from noon to 8 p.m. June 6 in the Public Meeting Room.

A public presentation with a tour was held May 24.

The school district is eligible for 81.7 percent State Building Aid, which means the state will reimburse the school district 81.7 cents for every dollar spent on the project. Along with that, the school district will use $1 million in reserves to offset the impact on local property tax bills.

The average estimated impact on a tax bill for a property assessed at $50,000 will be $7.08 annually. For a $75,000 property, the annual cost will be $10.61, and for a $100,000 property, the annual cost is $14.15, according to information provided by the school.

Security improvements include updating surveillance equipment, installation of about 70 new high-definition cameras, network and digital storage upgrades, door access control and monitoring improvements, motion and intrusion detection equipment and electrical and other infrastructure upgrades for the new systems.
