ELCS renovation project totals about $651,000

ELIZABETHTOWN — A capital project totaling $651,293 at Elizabethtown-Lewis Central School will be put to vote noon to 8 p.m. March 5.

Proposition 1 totals $341,293 and would have no tax implications to ELCS property owners due to state aid. It focuses on repairs to the roof, utilities and other areas.

Proposition 2 totals $310,000 and focuses on asbestos abatement and replacing the flooring in elementary classrooms. It requires local taxpayer funding of about 33 percent, which would translate to 4 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value.

A public hearing on the EXCEL-aided project will be held at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 27, in the ELCS conference room.

  • Why do wolves howl?

    Of all the myths that dog the wolf, none is more widely accepted than the idea that wolves howl at the moon. Images of wolves with their heads upturned, singing at the night sky, are as unquestioned as a goldfish's three-second memory or a dog's color-blindness (both also myths).
