School District Moves Forward With March 11 Referendum

The district decided to move forward after not receiving any update on a promised $2.4 million from Gov. Chris Christie.

Ocean City taxpayers will go to the polls on March 11 to determine whether the school district should get about $2.5 million for repairs to the Ocean City Primary School, Shore News Today reports.

The Board of Education officially decided to move forward with the idea on Jan. 29 after the school district never received any update from the state as to $2.4 million Gov. Chris Christie promised to the district last month.

The Board of Education proposes adding the $2,497,422 to an existing amount of $2,399,279 Regular Operating District grant from the state and $1,101,497 from the district’s capital reserve for the proposed infrastructure repairs, according to the report.

The total cost of the project is $5,998,198 and would be completed by the summer of 2015, according to the report.

The project includes a new HVAC system and a new roof. An informational session is scheduled for Feb. 19 at 5:30 p.m., according to the report.
