The Board of Education is proposing an expenditure of $75,000 or less for the replacement and reconstruction of the pool filtration system and the related components of the swimming pool at the Voorheesville Middle School/High School.
This project will be eligible for State Aid, which means 61.8% of the expense of this project will be returned to the District next year from New York State. Specifically, if the District spends $75,000 from the Capital Reserve Fund, then $46,350 in aid will be received by the District next year so the net cost to the District for this project will actually be $28,650.
