Port Byron’s $13 million school capital project approved by state

The Port Byron Central School District’s latest capital project has the green light.

District Superintendent Neil O’Brien said the $13 million project received approval from the state Jan. 9. The endeavor, which was approved by taxpayers in August 2016, includes renovations to the football field, asbestos flooring removal at A.A. Gates Elementary School and Dana West Junior-Senior High School, more security cameras and four new generators.

O’Brien said the district took a risk and started bidding with contractors for the project in December before final approval was given. The district board of education is expected to approve bids at their next meeting on Jan. 25.
