Voters in the North Syracuse school district heading to the polls
North Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – Voters in the North Syracuse Central School District are heading to the polls today to vote on a referendum to increase security and replace the turf at Cicero-North Syracuse High School.
The $2 million plan will not cost taxpayers in the district anything – it relies on a reserve fund and state aid.
Polls opened at 6 a.m. and will remain open until 9 p.m.
The district spent about $50,000 in the last year just to keep the field together with stitching.
“We can't use the money that's in the reserve fund for anything other than the replacement of the track and the field. The voters voted on that many years ago, it was designated for that purpose only,” Speach said.
The “pouring rights” deal with Coca-Cola means there will be no local cost to taxpayers. State aid will cover the rest.
People who live south of Route 481 can vote at the Administrative Office Building on Taft Road.
Those who live north of 481 can vote at Cicero Elementary School.
