Riverhead School District

Riverhead BOE to discuss $41K repair reserve fund proposal

The Riverhead school board has scheduled a public hearing to discuss using $41,200 from the district’s repair reserve fund.

The proposed projects at the high school include: repairing paint for the gym’s partitions and repairing the fuel storage tank vent. The monies are also earmarked to repair fencing and screening at Roanoke Avenue and Phillips Avenue elementary schools, according to the public notice.

Last August, the school board approved using $1.7 million for various upgrades at the high school, including replacement of lighting and crumbling concrete in the back plaza courtyard, repair of the south and student parking lots and replacement of a damaged ceiling and lighting in the cafeteria.

In March, the board also approved using $456,000 from the repair reserve account to pay for other projects at the high school, including paint, interior and exterior door-exit devices, HVAC rooftop temperature controllers and a hot-water mixing valve. Other monies were allocated for the middle school’s boiler room valves and boiler section, Roanoke Avenue Elementary School’s gym floor and flooring for five classrooms at Aquebogue Elementary School.

Tuesday’s public hearing and regular school board meeting is set for 7 p.m. Tuesday at Aquebogue Elementary School.
