SLEEPY HOLLOW, N.Y. – Tarrytown school officials are seeking opinions from the community on a possible bond proposition that would address building and field maintenance.
A study committee formed by the district has posted a survey online to gather thoughts from the public on the proposed capital project.
The total cost of the work needed is estimated to be $8 million and would be financed through a 15-year bond. About 30 percent to 40 percent of the cost would be reimbursed through state aid, with a private donation to cover the upper field at Washington Irving Intermediate School.
Officials estimate the financing would require a 1 percent tax levy increase, adding an estimated $120 in taxes for a mid-priced home in the district.
“The committee has come up with some tentative recommendations and is soliciting feedback from the public for use in shaping the recommendations that they will ultimately make to the Board of Education,” the district said on its website. “We would greatly appreciate it if you could take five minutes and complete the following online survey so we can include your input in the process.”
