Newfield School Voters Approve Revised Capital Project
Voters in the Newfield Central School District have passed a half million dollar capital project to replace heating and cooling systems in district buildings.
 
The capital project vote passed 94-70 Tuesday, it allows the Newfield district to borrow $500,000 to install a new heating and cooling system. The public referendum came after bids for the work were higher than expected.
 
The work is part of a summer building project that includes renovations to elementary and high school offices and the middle school roof, all of which are already under way and will be paid for with District reserves.
 
The total project cost has been revised to $1.7 million.
 
The district estimates that the cost to taxpayers will be minimal, with the owner of a $100,000 property seeing an increase in their tax bill of $1.40 per year with the STAR exemption, or $2 annually without the STAR exemption.
