Manchester board holds off seeking $22m for building projects
The board's Building and Sites Committee recently finalized its Capital Improvements Plan (CIP), a list of 22 projects that total $22.2 million.
Referring to Superintendent Debra Livingston, Gatsas added, "She's just started the preliminary rounds of the budget."
"The list would be several pages deep if we sent over everything. This is a prioritized list," Avard said. "Some of these items have been on the list for many years. We don't expect everything to be done as a bonded project ... and the list has gone down quite a bit (over the years). This is more for the aldermen to see where we're at and where our priorities are."
Ward 9 board member Art Beaudry, who is also on the building committee, said the project would also entail creating classrooms in the basement and eliminating the portables at the school. "That's part of the cost," he said.
"I would honestly hope the incoming board would look at the top two priorities," Beaudry said. "Everybody in this city knows what's happening at Beech with the portables and with the walls... Give students there the same safe haven other students have and give them a good learning environment."
The Central High track repairs were the number 18 priority on last year's CIP email@example.com
