Sag Harbor voters approve $9M in bonds for school renovations

Sag Harbor School District voters approved two bond propositions that will pay for $9 million in school improvements.

“I am very pleased for this community and our students,” Interim Superintendent of Schools Carl Bonuso said in a statement. “We worked as a team to provide our students with what they need to succeed.”

Proposition 1, to raise $7.35 million, passed Wednesday night, 740-369. At the Pierson Middle/High School, improvements and renovations will take place on the auditorium, a kitchen, technology classrooms and a parking lot. At the elementary school, additional gymnasium storage space will be added and a parking lot fixed.

Proposition 2 also passed, but by a slimmer margin — 585-507. That bond, for $1.62 million, will pay for a synthetic turf field at the middle and high school building, a two-lane walking track, a new scoreboard and a concrete area outside of the cafeteria.

Work will tentatively start in the fall of 2014 and will be completed by the fall of 2016.
