Belleville Henderson to hold capital project vote February 2

BELLEVILLE, NY —  Residents in the Belleville Henderson Central School District will have the opportunity to vote on a $4.4 million dollar capital improvement project for the district.

The vote will take place on Thursday, February 2, 2023 from 2 pm – 8 pm in the school foyer. The District’s goal is “Preserving the Past as We Move to the Future.”

The project will involve improvements to both the District’s K-12 Building and the Bus Garage. The three areas of focus will be safety and security, energy efficiency, and extending the useful life of the existing buildings.

“Through these improvements, we intend to enhance the learning environment of our students, expand upon existing safety measures within our buildings, and ultimately save district taxpayers money in the long term through lower energy costs and allowing districts buildings to be strong for years to come to serve future generations,” said Jane Collins, Superintendent.

A majority of the money for the project, (71.4%) will come in the form of state aid while just over $350,000 will be paid using Capital Reserve Funds.

If approved, work on the project will be put out to bid in early 2024 with construction beginning that April, lasting through the end of August 2025.

Further details of the project can be found on the district’s website
