Warwick Valley CSD to consider capital project: No local tax impact

on August 31, 2017

The Warwick Valley Central School District is considering a capital project that includes repairs and renovations to all of the District’s schools and will come at no additional cost to Warwick Valley taxpayers.

If approved by voters, the capital project will have no local tax impact. State aid will pay for 63.8 percent of the cost, and money set aside in the District’s capital reserve fund will cover the balance.

Most of the work was identified in a state-required building condition survey done in 2016 that involved an extensive and independent inspection of all District buildings. The survey identified infrastructural elements that are at or near the end of their useful lives.

The proposed capital project is expected to include roof work, masonry repairs, upgrades to electrical and plumbing systems and energy efficiency upgrades, as well as enhancements and improvements to classrooms and other instructional spaces.

In the coming weeks, the District’s Facilities Planning Committee as well as the Warwick Valley Central School District Board of Education will hold meetings to determine the size and scope of the capital project. The next meeting of the Facilities Planning Committee is scheduled for 6 pm Sept. 25. A Board of Education work session will follow at 7 pm.
