Voters to decide on FCSD improvements

FALLSBURG – The Fallsburg Central School District will ask voters to decide on a $15.9 million capital improvement project on May 16 that officials say addresses energy efficiency as well as health and safety renovations district-wide.
There will be security upgrades, including entrance vestibules at the junior-senior high school and the elementary school. There will be bathroom renovations and exterior site improvements, including the outdoor track and practice fields. The HVAC upgrades will continue the district’s quest to improve student comfort and thermal efficiency.
The gymnasium floor, bleachers and windows will be replaced at the high school. The pool renovation, a centerpiece of the capital project, will include a new tiled deck, a new pool liner and plumbing upgrades.
FCSD Superintendent Dr. Ivan Katz said the vote will determine how effectively the district is able to address its facility issues, and he urged residents to educate themselves about the expenditures and to ask questions if necessary.
“On behalf of the Fallsburg Central School District Board of Education, we look forward to hearing from [voters] as we approach the May 16th vote,” he said in a statement.
