Voting set for Dec. 7 on $9.35 million Perry Central School capital project

Perry School District residents will vote Dec. 7 on a proposed $9.35 million capital project at Perry Central School. The project would include numerous infrastructure upgrades and improvements, along with restoration or replacement of some of its athletic fields. It would include $8.67 million on bonding, along with using $677,111 from the district’s capital reserves.

There would be no impact on the local tax levy, said Superintendent Daryl McLaughlin. A public hearing will be conducted 5:30 p.m. today in the senior high school auditorium. Major projects of the project would include:
■ Window replacements in the elementary/junior high school.
■ Replacement of legacy heating, ventilation and air conditioning controls in both district buildings.
■ Addition of a new five-pad tennis court at the elementary/junior High School.

The Village of Perry has razed the tennis courts village park, McLaughlin said. The district has arranged an intermunicipal agreement with the Village to use its courts.

■ Replacement of the southern playground at the elementary/junior high school.
■ Installing new high-efficiency boilers and pumps in the senior high school.
■ Replacement of the water main from the street to the senior high school.
