Voters Approve Natural Gas Capital Project

Capital project, noted as 'Proposition 2' on the ballot, gains more than 65 percent of the community's support.

The budget may have failed, but 65.9 percent of voters on Tuesday supported a proposition that will save the district hundreds of thousands of dollars by converting all district buildings to natural gas.

Residents voted 4,554 to 2,358 to support the proposition, which will cost the taxpayers $780,000 – but which will save the district more than $450,000 in one year.

Administrators have also said the state would likely refund the district 66 percent of the cost in the form of building aid, a form of revenue separate from traditional state aid.

The Board of Education as a separate item rather than build it into the school budget because it would have a chance to pass on its own without being tied to the passage or failure of the school budget.

I voted no on this. I don't believe the initial cost is accurate. I think it will be much more. Look at your Kids teacher's salaries. Its not pretty http://seethroughny.net/
