F-M School District posts video on facilities improvement project

The Fayetteville-Manlius School District has posted a video on its website's homepage that features Superintendent Corliss Kaiser and details the proposed capital improvements project, which residents will vote on March 1.

The video gives the viewer an up-close look at work that must be done throughout four schools in the district and the bus garage.

If voters approve the $10.5 million facilities referendum, construction of a new transportation center, which costs less than one-third of the total project, would begin next year and last about four months.

Other capital improvements include locker and elevator replacement at Eagle Hill Middle School; a full fire alarm system replacement at Wellwood Middle School; an HVAC replacement, casework and flooring replacement at Fayetteville Elementary School; and interior door and frame replacements at the high school. High school funds would also go to field drainage, irrigation and sod replacement, but if the turf field project goes through, that money would be allocated to additional infrastructure needs, officials said.

Because voters approved a capital reserve fund last May, officials said there is already money set aside, and there would be no tax impact on residents.

The district is holding a capital project informational meeting, open to the public, at 7 p.m. Wednesday Feb. 16 at the bus garage, 222 W. Franklin St. in Fayetteville.

The facilities referendum is scheduled from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday March 1 at Fayetteville Elementary School, 704 S. Manlius St. in Fayetteville.
