At its meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 2, the Stillwater Board of Education voted to adopt a resolution for a proposed $1.3 million capital project, which will be presented to the public for a vote on Wednesday, March 24, from 12-9 p.m., in the Stillwater CSD Auditorium.
The capital project will result in no tax increase for Stillwater taxpayers. The proposed capital project would be paid for using funds already approved by district residents and reserved, with the remainder coming from the district’s fund balance.
“The project will help us provide a safer environment for our students and community members who use our facilities and will be paid for without levying additional taxes on the community,” Superintendent Patricia Morris said.
Highlights of the project include:
- Resurfacing of the track
- Resurfacing of the turf field
- Replacing the original wooden bleachers in the middle school gym to meet ADA compliance requirements
- Replacing doors and hardware in the middle school gym to meet current safety and code requirements
The district plans to schedule community information sessions prior to the vote to educate the public about the tax-neutral capital project. More information about the project and the vote will also be mailed to all district residents in early March.
If approved, construction would begin in the summer of 2021.
Questions about the project may be directed to the Superintendent at (518) 373-6100, extension 30022.
