A vote will be happening just before Christmas for Hornell City School District residents for a project that would benefit school buildings.
The project will focus on a plan worth $32 million dollars. It will work to improve the Intermediate School building which is 100 years old. It would also work on improvements to other buildings. Voting for the project will be on December 20 in the Hornell High School lobby from noon until 9 p.m. In order to pass, at least 60% of the votes must be in favor of the project.
This plan is just the first phase of a large ten-year plan. In all there are three phases that will address the building issues. Every phase will need to pass a vote to take place. Phase two is expected next year or in 2024 and the third phase is expected to take place in 2027.
The first thing that will happen is work to improve the Intermediate School. Classroom sizes will be adjusted, the office and nurse’s office will receive renovations, and mechanical and electrical equipment will be modernized. A two story classroom will also be added. So far, the plan appears to have support from voters. Passing the plan would have no impact on the tax rates for residents, according to The Evening Tribune.
