The Tuckahoe Board of Education has proposed a near $10 million bond that, if approved, would “address the district’s most basic needs for additional classrooms, safety and security upgrades, and high priority infrastructure repairs.
The Board announced on Monday that on Tuesday, April 10, members of community will be asked to vote on a $9,987,000 capital bond project that includes the addition of a second story at William E. Cottle Elementary School, construction of a new security vestibule at Cottle and a turf field replacement and communication system replacement at the school.
If passed, officials said the cost of the project for a home with an assessed value of $8,500 would be $254 annually; however, due to the retirement of existing debt, the impact is expected to be closer to $60 for year one and two before becoming cost neutral.
Voting will be held from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. on April 10 at Cottle and the Tuckahoe Community Center.
