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.
