Midlakes capital project passes with ease

Voters in the Phelps-Clifton Springs Central School District approved a $15.6 million capital project Tuesday overwhelmingly.

The final tally was 307 in favor and 72 opposed.

Superintendent Matt Sickles said the project will address a variety of facility needs on the Midlakes campus, and improve the learning experience for students.

“We appreciate everyone who took time out of their busy holiday schedules to vote today,” Sickles said. “We are grateful to live in and serve a community that not only values and supports its students, but also the educational program our entire staff works so hard to deliver each and every day.”

The project has no new tax impact. State building aid will pay for about 78 percent of the project, with the remainder financed through reserves.
