Beacon City School District voters on Dec. 5 approved a nearly $9 million capital improvements plan, 480 to 98. It includes construction of a multi-sport artificial turf field behind Beacon High School, air conditioning in parts of Rombout Middle School and safety and technological upgrades throughout the district.
The turf field will be installed behind Beacon High School.
School officials said the projects, which should begin in 2019 and two-thirds of which will be funded through state aid, would not require a property tax increase beyond what the district would normally propose next spring.
