Rocky Point Voters Pass Capital Reserve Projects

Vote passes 305-199.

Voters on Monday passed a referendum for three Capital Reserve Projects, including the installation of a new turf field, by a vote of 305-199.

"Tonight we see saw that the voters wanted this to go forward and we're happy that they wanted it to go forward and help us improve our instructional spaces, replace the track that needs to be replaced and to help add value to the track as well," said Superintendent Michael Ring.

Ring explained that the projectwill now go to the state for official approval. After it's approved by the state sometime in December or January, it will go out to bid.

Voters were presented with one vote for three projects, including replacement of the grass field with synthetic turf, the reconstruction of the existing track and the reconstruction of instructional laboratories.

"The track will keep us in competition which we might have otherwise been out of because we wouldn't have had a track suitable for competition," Ring explained.

Ring estimated the bids should be received sometime in March, at which time the lowest qualified bid will be accepted by the board. Construction is expected to begin just after the end of school in June.

Stacy, I have to wonder how many people, like you, believed what the District said and thought that all three had to be put as one vote in order to be reimbursed by the state. I think you should educate yourself a little bit better. When the District first stated that the three had to be put up as one vote I called the NYS Dept. of Ed. to check and this is what they told me could have been done. Prop 1 THE CLASSROOMS Prop 2 THE TRACK Prop 3 THE TURF PROPOSITIONS 2 AND 3 WILL PASS ONLY IF PROP 1 PASSES This way we would have been allowed to pass the parts that we supported and any parts that passed (because 1 must pass) would have been reimbursed. Either you are somehow connected to the District and want to continue disseminating their propaganda or you simply believed everything they said without checking into it.

The state should NOT be reimbursing anything. If the parents want this for their esteem, then let them pay for it! They should be so concerned about turning out productive kids to enter the workplace.

So we should all write to Senator LaValle and Assemblyman Losquadro and tell them we don't want the state to approve this. They keep telling us there's no money, so why would they even conisder paying for synthetic turf in this economic climate? I just don't get it!

Unfortunately, it boils down to people NOT getting out there to vote! Part of the problem is alot of renters dont vote, and just dont care what passes in a budget. The remainder are just lazy, so everybody suffers from this.
