Many of the projects proposed for the first andsubsequent years involve upkeep of existing facilities.As homeowners are well aware, it’s more cost-effec-tive to repair or replace aging infrastructure such asroofs and heating systems than it is to wait until theyfail, possibly incurring additional damage and a steep-er price tag. Timely repairs also prevent disruption of the educational process.“We believe it’s in the best interest of our tax-payers to be good stewards of our schools, undertak-ing necessary repairs, renovations and upgrades asthey are needed,” said David L’Hommedieu,Assistant Superintendent of Information Technologyand Operational Innovation.The district’s eight schoolsrange in age from 20 years (MapleAvenue Middle School) to 89 years(Lake Avenue Elementary School),with an average age of 51 years. Theschools, plus the 10-year oldTransportation and MaintenanceFacility, total approximately1,350,000 square feet.
