Local station airs video Q & A on proposed renovation project; more public meetings slated
Dec. 6, 2010
WVLT Channel 17 is airing a video interview
with Watervliet City School District Superintendent Dr. Paul Padalino
concerning the district’s proposed renovation project and Dec. 20 bond
The video is also available for viewing on WVLT’s Youtube channel.
Watervliet sixth grader Patrick Ethier conducted the interview with the assistance of Charles Patricelli and Matt Ethier of the Watervliet Housing Authority, which operates WVLT.
The district is seeking voter support for an $18.9 million facilities improvement project that will have no effect on local taxes. If approved by voters, the project will be paid for by state building aid and Qualified School Construction Bonds, which have been earmarked by the state for school renovations only.
Two more public information meetings are planned for Thursday, Dec. 8 and Dec. 15 for those wishing to know more about the project. The meetings will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the administrative conference room at the Watervliet Junior-Senior High School.
