Residents of the Churchville-Chili Central School District recently approved the elementary schools’ renovations and playgrounds capital project.
The $3,952,400 project will be funded through state aide and the capital reserve fund with no additional impact to the local tax share.
The project focuses on the following areas at each school.
Chestnut Ridge Elementary School: masonry repointing, boiler room egress stair, library lockers and wall finishes, basement water infiltration, and a new playground.
Churchville Elementary School: exterior door and gymnasium door, water infiltration at electric room, public address system with abatement allowance, library corridor locker replacement, first-floor boiler room corridor renovations, a new playground, and kitchen modifications, upgrades and equipment.
Fairbanks Road Elementary School: stair treads, gymnasium and bathroom doors, and a new playground.
“This project allows us to focus on areas of need at each elementary school, as well as new playgrounds that we are unable to address through our regular operating budget,” Superintendent Lori Orologio said. “I want to thank the voters for their continued support of our students.”
The referendum resulted in 322 “yes” votes and 84 “no” votes, totaling 406 votes.
