Lackawanna

All three propositions in a special Lackawanna City School District election on Tuesday were approved by voters.

By a vote of 221 to 114, voters passed a proposition that will allow the district to pursue $475,000 in bonds for improvements to the McKinley School Building at 245 South Shore Blvd.

The building, which hasn’t been used as a school in years, houses the district’s administrative operations.

Voters also approved, by a vote of 301 to 37, a ballot item authorizing the School Board to sell the site of the former Roosevelt School at 170 Odell St. The 210-foot-by-210-foot parcel has been empty since the school was demolished.

The final proposition allows the board to liquidate $10.8 million from a capital reserve fund that was established in 1974 and apply the money to the district’s general fund, per section 3651 of state education law. Voters passed that measure by 277 to 59.
