A multi-million dollar Hornell City School District capital project that will be decided by voters in December centers on Hornell High School, where a gymnasium is slated to be rebuilt and roof problems fixed.

The $30.2 million project will need a simple majority to pass, not a super-majority 60 percent, after New Yorkers recently backed a change to the state constitution expanding the borrowing limit of the state’s 57 small city school districts.

The capital project, which also includes district-wide safety and security improvements, goes to residents on Wednesday, Dec. 20. Vote between noon and 9 p.m. in the Hornell High School lobby.

A community forum on the capital project is scheduled for 5 to 6 p.m., Dec. 6 in the high school library.
