Ossining School Bond Vote March sixth

Ossining School Bond Vote March sixth

Ossining school district voters will vote on passage of a $41.5 million school bond initiative to address infrastructure tomorrow, March 6th, 7am -9pm in the Ossining High School auditorium. A $69 million bond was voted down last year.

There is considerable discussion on both sides of the issue in social media, with bond supporters explaining that it will not raise taxes and pointing out the many improvements needed. Those against the bond ask aloud why these matters haven't been addressed in regular budgets over the years, saying they should have been part of regular maintenance.

Ossining Citizens for Schools supports the bond proposal, and their website, http://ossiningcfs.com/ has their side of the issue. Among their reasons for supporting the bond are the need for new furnaces, the age of the high school auditorium, and the need for exterior repairs on the middle school. They also point out that the high school science labs were built in the 1960's.

The argument against the bond proposal can be found at http://www.freeossiningtaxpayers.com/. The points against the budget are that they consider that the needs proposed by the bond should have been regular maintenance, do not address classrooms directly, and that they will actually raise taxes, contrary to the claims of the district.

Voters will decide on March 6th.
