Ellicottville Central School District voters agreed to the district’s proposal to spend $925,000 on a new capital project. The vote, held on Jan. 21, passed with 113 votes in favor and 36 against.
These newly approved funds will be used to replace major portions of the school’s roof, construct a new vestibule at the south entrance to the school and purchase a state-of-the-art sound system for the school’s new performance facility that is currently under construction.
This capital project will be completed while workers are on-site completing the larger capital project approved by voters in 2013.
The board of education met for a brief special meeting at 8:15 p.m. on Jan. 21 after the polls closed to formally approve the results. The proposition was unanimously approved.
