Paying for schools – Taxpayers get break

Corning will pay what would have been local taxpayers’ bill for a proposed $76 million schools construction project in its hometown, the Associated Press reported Dec. 20.

Under a statewide program in New York aimed at modernizing and repairing school buildings, the state would foot the bill for the other half of new construction and 75 percent of school renovations.

If approved by district voters, Corning would make yearly contributions of $1 million to $2 million toward what would be its share of the debt.
