Greenburgh Central School District (GCSD) Vote on January 17th
The GCSD Board has called for a public vote on January 17th to get state aid to help fund an
Energy Performance Contract. The contract with ConEdison Solutions will make our school systems more energy efficient and will include necessary replacements and repairs. With voter approval, the district will receive 10% of the cost of the project from New York State.
The efficiencies and proposed upgrades will not increase school taxes as cost savings will be realized through energy system upgrades and state aid. If these savings are not realized, Con Edison will compensate the district for the difference. The GCSD Board of Education has already approved a preliminary contract but without voter approval the district can not receive state funding and the proposed scope of the project will be reduced.
Toys For Tots
The Marine Toys for Tots is asking for any help you can give this year. Toys you donate will be used to make over 31,000 children (who signed up right here in Westchester) happy. Toys can be dropped off at The Greenburgh Town Hall and many other locations in and around Greenburgh. Donations are much appreciated and can be deductible for tax purposes.
