Please Vote "Yes"
on Borough Proposition #1
By Dave Lieben
September 27, 2005
I'd like to encourage everyone
to support Borough Proposition #1 on October 4. These bonds will
provide for several long-overdue capital improvement projects
within the School District to go forward. The state agreed to
provide 70% of the funding in the last legislative session, and
the borough's portion has already been collected, much of it
from tourists, through the half-cent sales tax increase.
The projects that will be funded
include: improved fire alarm systems for Kayhi, Pt. Higgins,
and Revilla; fire doors and HVAC controls for Pt. Higgins; an
elevator upgrade and a new electrical panel for the charter schools;
a roof system replacement for the humanities area of Kayhi; a
new security system as well as furniture, fixtures, and equipment
for Schoenbar; and new fall protection surfaces for the playground
areas of all the elementary schools.
Thank you for your support!
