Improvements will cost up to $9.9 million
By a 152-91 vote, residents of the Garrison school district approved a “preservation, innovation, security and accessibility project” that will cost up to $9.9 million. The tally represented a 12 percent turnout among the district’s 2,042 registered voters.
About $900,000 for the upgrades will come from district savings, $1 million from state aid and the remainder from a tax levy. The district said the average increase for a taxpayer in a home assessed at $500,000 should be $110 to $140 annually, depending on the project’s cost.
Construction is expected to begin after the 2020-21 school year.
