Massena Central planning phone system upgrade
MASSENA — The Massena school district’s architects are planning for another capital outlay project that would upgrade the phone system.
“That will actually be a telephone system improvement and upgrades. We have all the technical details and we’re ready to jump into the design boards for that,” IBI Group architect Ed Bernhauer told the Board of Education. “This is the main head system that’s getting upgraded with some server components. A lot of internal equipment is already in place.”A capital outlay project is a small project that can’t exceed $100,000. It’s approved by voters in the spring when they vote on the district’s annual budget. The project is eligible for state aid.
“We’ll prepare the documents, but we can’t go out to bid for that particular piece until this May’s budget vote has passed,” Bernhauer said.
A pending capital outlay project will upgrade the fuel depot at the bus garage the district shares with the village.
