$6M Vt. school bond vote to build gym, cafeteria

Posted: Updated:
CONCORD, Vt. -

The Vermont town of Concord has scheduled a vote next month on a $6.3 million school construction bond to build a new gymnasium and cafeteria.

Two years ago the Concord School had to remove showers and toilets from its locker rooms at the school's Dickson Gymnasium because of mold. The mold was removed, but the building is still missing five toilets in the women's room and four in the men's room.

If voters approve the bond request on Nov. 12, long-term financing would be used to consolidate Concord's two school buildings, the gym and the main academic building into one.

The Essex-Caledonia superintendent, Brian Rayburn, says bringing the current building up to code would cost $300,000 more than the current plan to rebuild in a new location and connect the two buildings. No new classrooms will be built.

Informational meetings are scheduled for Nov. 4 at 6 p.m. and Nov. 9 at 10 a.m.
