Hammond Voters Approve $1.4M School Upgrades
Voters gave the thumbs-up Tuesday night to a nearly $1.5 million plan to make upgrades to Hammond Central School.
Eighty-two people voted yes for the capital project and 36 voted no.
Much of the money will be used to make the school more energy efficient.
The school will install a solar energy system and fix its wind turbine.
A new visitor parking lot is also included in the project.
District taxpayers will be responsible for 30 percent of the $1.4 million price tag -- a debt that will be paid over the course of 15 years.
