Tonight's School Committee agenda includes:
The City/schools were found to be in violation of DEM's OWTS (Onsite Wastewater Treatment Systems) and DEM sent the Warwick school admin a notice of enforcement that requires the City/Schools to connect the sewer lines at VETS JrHS to the city's sewer system or face fines of up to $1000/day.
Warwick Watch reached out to Warwick school admin asking if the cost to connect to the sewer system was already factored in the School's 2017-2018 budget.
School admin graciously responded and stated that the 2017-2018 Original Budget was able to cobble together $675,000 for building improvements. From those funds, the Schools are targeting sewer hookups, fire alarm system replacements and power upgrades, as well as any other building repairs requested.
Bid results from each of the projects will drive whether the Schools have funding issues or not. School admin will not know the fiscal impacts until mid to late September. Budget concerns will be addressed in November 2017, when year end projections are prepared.
