Funds for stadium turf fixes go before Victor school voters

The campus at Victor Central Schools will be torn up for most of the summer as work continues on a $25 million capital project approved by voters two years ago.

George Spinaris of Pittsford-based Campus Construction Management told the Victor Board of Education recently, that work, begun in the spring, is about 5 percent complete.

He updated the board on the project, along with Dave Phelps from the SWBR design firm, and school Business Administrator Joe Dougherty, noting bids for the project came in at $24.1 million, leaving $875,031 in available funds that the district wants to use to repair the top level of its stadium turf field that is deteriorating.

The board voted to approved a referendum for Sept. 18 to ask voters for permission to re-appropriate about $450,000 of the excess funds to repair the turf field, funds not included in the original May 2016 project vote.

The bulk of the savings — about $710,000 — came in selecting an alternate on the intermediate school roof repair where a thermal scan had revealed more than 90 percent of the roof was in good shape and the insulation was not wet so it could be re-used with additional new insulation. Another $165,000 was saved in determining the generator would not have to be replaced at this time.
