Public hearing set on proposed ELCS renovations

ELIZABETHTOWN — Residents of the Elizabethtown-Lewis Central School District are invited to participate in a public

hearing set for 6 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 27, in the school conference room on the upcoming vote on the EXCEL capital-project renovations.

“We will have a brief presentation outlining how this project came to be, and we have photos of the work items proposed for the project’s scope of work,” Superintendent/Principal Scott Osborne said in a press release.

The referendum for all qualified voters of the School District is set for noon to 8 p.m. Tuesday, March 5, in the main lobby of the school. 

Voters will consider two separate propositions to address needed repairs and renovations to the school building, Osborne said.

Proposition 1, which totals $341,293, would have no local tax implications to ELCS property owners.

Proposition 2 requires local taxpayer funding for 33 percent of the proposition’s work, which would

translate to an additional 4 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value for 16 years.

The School District has created a web page outlining information on the proposed project; go to to see links and information.

Members of the school community are encouraged to attend the public hearing on Feb. 27 and comment on the proposed work.
