Marcellus voters approve $14.85 million capital project



On March 10, Marcellus Central School District residents approved a $14.85 million proposal to upgrade the high school for 21st century educational programming and undertake additional enhancements at C.S. Driver Middle School and K.C. Heffernan Elementary School.
 
Voters approved the capital project proposal 801 votes to 559 votes.
 
“We want to thank those residents who found time in their busy lives to cast ballots today,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Craig J. Tice. “This project is critical to providing a safe and healthy learning environment for our students – and one that fully prepares them for the world that awaits them after graduation.”
 
The project, scaled down from an earlier proposal rejected by Marcellus voters last October, includes a complete renovation of all classroom spaces and corridors at Marcellus High School, as well as partial roof replacement, relocation of the main office and main entrance, renovated locker rooms and a new choral room. Tailored to reflect community feedback after the first vote, the project includes security enhancements at Driver Middle School and K.C. Heffernan Elementary School, along with heating and ventilation unit replacements and new roofing over the kindergarten wing at KCH.
 
Nearly all of the proposed work qualifies for state aid, significantly decreasing the local share by 42 percent from $57 (as originally proposed) to $33 for the owner of a $100,000 home.
 
Many of the improvements listed in the proposal were identified as priorities in the district’s required Building Condition Survey, including new water pumps and pipes, the removal of asbestos and lead-based paint, the painting of exterior wood fascia and new unit ventilators at KCH.
 
“It’s essential for our citizens to have a voice in defining the future of our schools, and we appreciate the community’s support of this proposal,” Board President Ryan Riefler said. “We also are pleased to be able to complete this project in a way that limits the financial burden for our district residents, by capitalizing on available state aid.”
 
Next steps in the process are: Phase 1 design and development (now through May 2015); New York State Department of Education review and approval (May to June 2015); bidding (May to July 2015); and construction (June to October 2015). Phase 2 construction would occur between March 2016 and February 2017.
