To the editor:
FREE MONEY!!! Do I have your attention? I hope so!
Because that is what the Croton-Harmon school district will get if everyone shows up on Tuesday May 20th to vote YES to the bond that is part of the school budget vote.
The one year bond is to cover pre-approved building improvements (health and safety related) and will get paid back in the following school year by guaranteed state aid. Voting YES for this bond is supporting the use of FREE government money. Once the school completes these projects and submits supporting documentation, the state will REFUND Croton-Harmon the money (roughly $539k) and the bond will be paid off.
Despite the fact that there have been meetings, Reflections articles, and Gazette articles explaining this bond there are some in this community that still do not seem to understand the particulars of this bond. It would be a shame if out of [bad] habit our community turned down this opportunity.
Voting takes place 6am-9pm on Tuesday May 20th at the Croton Harmon High School.
