VICTOR — Work will move forward on a proposed $25 million capital project, thanks to a vote of 406 to 178 on Tuesday, Oct. 18.

Qualified voters of the Victor Central School District gathered at Victor Intermediate School to cast paper ballots between noon and 9 p.m. But of the 16,637 possible voters, just 584 showed up to make their voices heard. 

The $25 million capital project, slated for 2018, will benefit students but won’t impact local property taxes, school administrators said.

It will include a $4 million energy performance contract, along with installation of new roofs, roadways, sidewalks, boilers and campus-wide energy efficient LED lighting. Improvements will also be made to all district buildings, including the bus garage and storage facility.

Paper ballots and absentee ballots were tallied by election inspectors.

To fund the $25 million project, administrators will use $2.7 million from a capital reserve fund to pay for the local share for this project. The balance will be covered by New York state.
