School Board Reviews Proposed Capital Project

RIPLEY — Ripley Central School Board members received a presentation on a proposed 2020-21 capital project from Tim Mertzlufft, senior project manager for Gordon Jones Associates, at their recent meeting.

The initial building project cost is $3.2 million,, however the district hopes to trim that cost to $2.9 million, “so we need to fine tune some things.” said Ripley superintendent William Caldwell.

Caldwell noted that the project is still in the preliminary stages.

“No final decisions have been made and we’re still putting all the pieces in place.” he said. “If we go forward, the BOE isn’t scheduled to approve the project until June and the public vote wouldn’t take place until September.”
