WEST ELLICOTT – An over $18 million dollar capital improvement project at Southwestern Central School has been approved by voters.

During the district-wide vote on Tuesday, the plan was approved 166 to 70.

In addition to over 30 individual projects across the school, several large projects were given the green light including expansion of the high school cafeteria and turf replacement at the football and soccer fields.

Around 84-percent of construction costs are covered by state aid, with officials saying 1.2-million dollars will be paid for by the district’s Capital Improvements Reserve Fund.

Additionally, $800,000 dollars in district money will be allocated to fill any funding gaps leftover.
