SKANEATELES, N.Y. -- The Skaneateles School District is seeking the public's input on what they're calling a scaled back building proposal.

In June, a multimillion dollar capital project was voted down. But Monday evening, the public had a chance to learn more and provide feedback on a new proposal that's $2,577,876. It calls for roof replacement, masonry restoration, commons window wall repair, drainage reconstruction and safety and security replacements.

Interim Superintendent Judith Pastel says these changes will have a long term benefit.

"When we have the leaking coming through the roof, it deteriorates the interior of the building. So we're going to actually have savings once these repairs are made, which makes a lot of sense," said Pastel.

The public can weigh in at future meetings on October 1st and the 15th or on the district's website. The board will adopt a proposal on October 15 and the public will vote on December 10th.
