RYE NECK, N.Y. -- Voters in the  Rye Neck Union Free School District will be voting on two bond propositions on Feb. 13 that would cost more than $27 million.

The bonds will address aging infrastructure, including replacing roofs and upgrading classrooms.

The first proposition, at approximately $6.28 million, involves replacing the flat roof sections at each of the district’s buildings. The middle and high school roof, which covers more than 100,000 square feet is a 23-year-old structure that needs to be completely replaced, the district said. The district said the proposed work will prevent collateral building damage due to roof failure.

The second proposition, at approximately $21.33 million, will expand and upgrade facilities the district said have become outdated to increased enrollment and insufficient space by building a two-story Collaborative Science Center, adding eight classrooms at the middle and high school campus.

The athletic facility will be expanded. For more information, click here .

The district will hold bond hearings on Jan. 10, 24 and Feb. 7. The vote is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 13 from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. at the Rye Neck High School Community Room.
