Authorization To Use Unexpended Proceeds From The 2005 Series I General Obligation Bond Issue For School Improvement Projects
The South Burlington School Board proposes to use unexpended bond proceeds for the purpose of making capital improvements or additions to Frederick Tuttle Middle School (install elevator), South Burlington High School (replace elevator, refurbish first floor bathrooms, replace north and west windows, and repair southern sections of roof), and Chamberlin School (repair roof), at the estimated total project cost of $1,675,000.00. No portion of this project will be eligible for state school construction aid because its (unit costs and/or allowable space) cause it to exceed the maximum cost for state participation under the state board of education’s formula for school construction. Therefore, the entire project shall be built at 100% school district cost without state participation. The cost of the portion of construction which is ineligible under the formula is $1,675,000.00. Shall the voters approve use of the unexpended principal amount of the South Burlington School District 2005 Series I General Obligation Improvement Bond of One Million Six Hundred Seventy-Five Thousand and 00/100 Dollars ($1,675,000.00) to finance capital improvements and additions to Frederick Tuttle Middle School, South Burlington High School, and Chamberlin School?
