A majority of residents in three Broome County school districts approved of moving forward with capital projects.
The Binghamton community voted 'yes' on the district's two propositions, which would have no impact on taxes. The first includes $28 million for infrastructure upgrades, and the second would spend $6.7 million on lighting and equipment to increase energy savings.
Also, voters approved the Chenango Valley Central School District's capital improvement project. The $15 million plan would make improvements to Port Dickinson Elementary, Chenango Bridge Elementary and the middle/high school, as well as the bus garage and maintenance building. Taxes would not be impacted.
And lastly, the Union-Endicott school district's $12 million plan was given the green light. The proposal includes replacing the high school roof, installing air conditioning in the elementary schools, upgrading the bleachers at Jennie F. Snapp Middle School, and replacing the asphalt topping at the bus garage. U-E residents wouldn't see a tax increase.
