Information Mailed to Voters Regarding Proposed Building Project

Infomation was mailed to voters November 12th outlining details of the project voters will consider on December  7th. Marcellus School District residents will vote on a proposed $17.5 million capital improvement project. If approved, the project will focus on re-roofing portions of all three buildings and re-paving and updating parking and roadways surrounding the high school. Our roofs are beginning to fail and are expected to reach the end of their useful lives by the time the project begins in 2023. We have continually repaired potholes and cracks in the roadways and parking lots surrounding the high school, and have now reached the point where repaving these areas is necessary.

We have also identified alternates that either allow us to capture additional work should bids on the project be favorable, or to have updated pricing to complete work in a future project. Alternates include construction of an agricultural education facility, replacement of the remaining original windows in the DMS auditorium and gymnasium, and renovations in the original DMS boys and girls locker rooms.

Taking into consideration increases in the cost of construction, state building aid of 80 percent, and use of debt replacement and $1.7 million in capital reserves, we anticipate no additional local taxes will be needed to accomplish the proposed project.

A public information meeting will be held virtually on November 29th at 6:30 pm using a link to be posted on the district’s website the week of November 22nd. The public information meeting will be broadcast from the Senior High School large group instruction room, where residents may choose to attend in person if they prefer.
