Hammondsport will vote on capital plan

HAMMONDSPORT--The Hammondsport Board of Education adopted a resolution at their October meeting approving a $8,628,535 capital improvement project and energy performance bond vote for the school district. A public vote on the plan will take place Thursday, Dec. 14 from noon until 8 p.m. at the primary gym.
The project includes $7,300,000 for capital improvements and $1,328,535 for an energy performance contract. Superintendent Kyle Bower said, "Even though the energy portion of the project doesn't actually require a public vote since the savings will pay for itself, the Hammondsport district can receive an additional $80,000 in state funding if the public votes in favor of the project." Bower added, "The district can certainly utilize the extra $80,000 in revenue."
The details of the plan include the following:
Capital Improvements: ($7,300,000)
• Infrastructure upgrades (remaining roofing, doors, etc.)
• Ventilation to meet code
• Hot water boiler piping
• Emergency lighting coverage
• Track resurfacing and site sanitary upgrade. The estimate for resurfacing the track is approximately $481,000. The estimate for the site sanitary work is approximately $216,000.
• Bus garage fuel canopy and monitoring system
• STEAM renovations (for Science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics)
• Auditorium upgrades
• Primary gym upgrades
• Fitness area renovations.
Energy Performance Contract: ($1,328,535)
• Upgrade to energy saving interior and exterior LED lighting;
• Integration of a lighting control system that self-adapts to the learning activities of classrooms;
• Numerous mechanical system upgrades replacing 1950s era equipment;
• Conversion of the existing steam boiler to a new, highly efficient hot water boiler; and
• Energy reducing upgrades to the building control system.
The total cost of the capital project is $8,628,535. The project will be paid for using a combination of state building aid funding, district capital reserve funds, energy performance funding and a tax increase from all district taxpayers. The school administration projects the tax increase to include the following: $4, $8 or $12 per year (Senior Star, Star, No-Star), based on a home valued at $100,000.
