A $9.2 million capital project was passed by voters in the Morrisville-Eaton Central School District 243-81 following a vote Tuesday night.

According to the district, the proposed capital project would address investing in energy efficiency upgrades for long-term operational cost savings, masonry restoration and repair, addressing health and safety issues, and improving infrastructure items that have reached the end of their useful life.

“The support of this community for its schools and its kids is second to none,” said Superintendent Michael Drahos. “This project will focus on making our buildings and grounds more energy efficient and safe while providing a positive and dynamic learning environment for years to come.”

The majority of the funding support for this project is generated from state building aid.

The maximum cost of this project is $9.2 million with the state aid reimbursement rate of 88.6 percent of eligible expenses. 

Construction is expected to begin next summer.
