NORTH SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Taxpayers in the North Syracuse School District will have to decide on a multi-million dollar plan for the high school.
District administrators announced the $2 million project on Wednesday. The proposal would replace the turf and track at the high school's football stadium. Officials also want to improve the field's drainage system and upgrade the locks at the high school.
However, taxpayers would not have to pay anything for the upgrades.
"When the field was put in in 1999, the district was wise enough to plan for its eventual replacement. So it has outlived its life expectancy. It's time and it has need to be changed. We're pleased that we've planned ahead and there will be no tax impact on this project," explained Annette Speach, North Syracuse School Superintendent.
The referendum is scheduled for a vote on October 16.
