When reached by telephone, Board Secretary/Business Administrator, Amy Capriotti, confirmed that BOE approved the Resolution authorizing the transfer.
- $80,000 for electrical upgrades at E.M. Burke School
- $90,000 for rooftop HVAC unit replacements at E.M. Burke School and Bellmawr Park School
- $145,500 for boiler replacements at E.M. Burke School and Bellmawr Park School
At last week’s regular BOE meeting, Capriotti said that the district had been holding back on spending until the audit was completed. The district had approximately $320,000 earmarked to transfer from capital reserve for emergent projects, she said.
Providing further clarification about the projects, Capriotti said last week that the electrical system at E.M. Burke is old, needs to be re-done, and is beyond what can be done to fix it.
School Superintendent, Annette Castiglione, also provided further comment last week by saying that E.M. Burke is hard to heat and cool and is an archaic building with small rooms.
