MINISINK VALLEY VOTERS APPROVED $36.9 MILLION CAPITAL PROJECT


 

Minisink Valley Central School District voters approved a $36.9 million capital improvement project by a vote of 559 in favor (76.6 percent) and 171 opposed (23.4 percent). 

 

“On behalf of our Board of Education and the district’s administration, I want to thank every individual who came out to vote today. We are very grateful for the community’s support of our district and our students,” said Superintendent of Schools Brian C. Monahan. 

 

In the near-term, the approved capital project will address health and safety-based infrastructure needs identified by a 2015-16 building conditions survey. In the longer-term, the project will protect the tax-payers investment in school facilities and expand opportunities for student learning. 

 

The capital project carries no projected tax increase, as it is timed with the retirement of existing debt. 


The district will now seek approval from the State Education Department to complete the first phase of the work in the summer of 2018.
