New Burlington High School cost exceeds bonding capacity


BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) – Prospective funds issues for Burlington’s proposed new higher faculty have school officers wanting for new sources of funding and considering scaling again the venture.

In advance of the Burlington School District college board meeting Tuesday, documents produced reveal the faculty district can only bond for $150 million, much under the $210 million estimate to make a new Burlington High University and Burlington Tech Heart.

The preliminary breakdown of charges for the project features $147 million for creating and web site construction, $32 million for other delicate-price design expenses and $29 million to tear down the old faculty.

That leaves a $60 million hole concerning these costs and what the town claims is out there for bonding potential.

The district does have some other funding sources, together with an more $25 million from a preceding capital approach and other money, leaving a $35 million gap.

So the faculty board is also on the lookout at charge-chopping, this kind of as relocating elements of the technical middle to the Burlington airport. But other cuts could possibly also be wanted to completely make up the shortfall.

Previous yr, the town mentioned there would be no trouble with the bonding potential and potential to bond for the university district.

I arrived at out to several university and city officials for an clarification of why bonding capacity is now a difficulty, but so I did not get an solution right before this story was posted.

Of program, what ever amount of dollars the district decides to bond for will have to be permitted by the voters. That question is scheduled to be on the ballot in November.
