T.I. Central School to hold vote on projects


Next week, Thousand Island Central School voters will be voting on a capital project vote.

I can see the need for most of these items. To convert the boilers over to propane makes total sense, so why would you not do this at the high school campus?

To put in a wood pellet boiler that is going to require an addition to a building, a pellet silo, endless maintenance (cleaning, ashes, dust, creosote, slag) versus a propane boiler that is maintenance free is mind-blowing. When I addressed this concern to Superintendent House, he responded back in two letters quoting “our” architect.

This leads to my other problem. The architect tried to explain away my concerns, but this is the same firm that was in place for a music addition when I was on the board. A roof that slopes back into a building with mechanical equipment on it, in snowy upstate New York. It was a surprise to see the pitch of the roof as they were hanging the steel.

Make sure you vote Dec. 10 from 2 to 9 p.m.
