CLCS voters back $12.25M capital project

MAYVILLE - Voters in the Chautauqua Lake Central School District approved a $12.25 million capital project Tuesday.

The project was approved with 256 "Yes" votes and 80 "No" votes with a total of 340 votes.

The project will come at no cumulative cost to taxpayers with funds withdrawn from the Capital Reserve Fund, and will save the district approximately $128,000 annually in energy savings alone.

Several upgrades, repairs and more are included in the project.

The project includes infrastructure upgrades, energy conservation, facility upgrades and reconstruction, a warranted roof 20-year coating, site and athletic field improvements, a fuel management system upgrade, security upgrades, technology improvements and lighting protection.

The upgrades and improvements include occupancy-based ventilation, which provides outside air to each room based on how many people are in the room. This allows for heating and cooling needs to be reduced, which also reduces annual costs.

Upgrading lighting to LED lights also will reduce the district's use of energy, as well as annual costs. Depending on the location, the district anticipates saving 25-50 percent in energy and expects a two to three times longer lamp life. The lighting also boasts lower annual maintenance and replacement costs.

The project will also include retrofitting an existing classroom space for the new Manufacturer's Club the school launched this year.
