Voters pass Walton School District Capital Project
By a vote of 256 to 55, on Tuesday, Walton Central School District voters gave the green light to a capital project according to a press release from school officials. With a total cost of $8,214,000, the project covers needed repairs to the district’s buildings and grounds, including replacing aging roofing, and a new parking lot at the middle/high school; as well as flood mitigation at Townsend Elementary. The project which will take place over two years, also includes work on the infrastructure of the buildings, as well as upgrades for increased energy savings.
Walton Superintendent Dr. Michael MacDonald said. “We are very thankful to the community for passing this project. These are very important repairs for our district to maintain a safe atmosphere for our students, staff, and community.”
The project is scheduled to end by the fall of 2022.
