Johnson City Schools To Vote On Upgrade Project

Johnson City High School is stepping closer to proposed projects and upgrades worth $17.8 million. School officials said the project, called “Vision 2015,” would be implemented without any increase in taxes. State and federal dollars will pay for a vast majority of the work. The school held a public meeting Tuesday night where parents and taxpayers had questions answered about the proposal. In addition to upgrading their 42-year-old science wing, plans call for a new multi-use turf field and new bleachers for the gymnasium. Questions from the public Tuesday surrounded parking concerns as well as the safety and costs of using artificial turf. The school district said while turf is more expensive to install, costs are much lower when it comes to maintenance of natural grass, making the turf option less costly over the long term. Johnson City voters may cast a ballot from noon to 8 p.m. on December 10th. Voting takes place at the high school and the Family Enrichment Network on Cherry Street. Johnson City residents with questions about their polling place can call 763-1238.
