More to be spent on capital project in Seneca Falls, but taxpayers won’t take hit

A capital improvement project in Seneca Falls could cost nearly $4 million more, after bids were higher than expected.

The board voted 7-0 to seek voter approval to spend the extra funds. The Finger Lakes Times reports that of that $3.9 million, $750,000 would come from a district capital building reserve fund, while the remaining $3.2 million would be borrowed and reimbursed by state aid.

If it passes, no new taxes would be levied.

In December 2017 voters approved a $13,950,000 capital project whose centerpiece is the construction of a new transportation facility adjacent to Bracht Field, according to the Times. The project also includes several other renovations throughout the district.
