School officials push bond vote to 2019
ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. (AP) — Officials in St. Johnsbury, Vermont have decided to move a vote on funding for school upgrades to next year.
The Caledonian-Record reports interim St. Johnsbury School District Superintendent Dr. Brian Ricca said last week that the bond vote would take place in Nov. 2019. Administrators had previously planned to set the vote for March. School officials have proposed security upgrades and a new pellet boiler that will cost an estimated $1.6 million.
Ricca says that he and others are “concerned with the lack of hard numbers” around the project. The district hasn’t received information from Black River Design about a redesigned entrance. Officials are still waiting for more bidders about the new wood pellet boiler.
The building committee hasn’t finalized details in the bond vote.
