School tax hike likely in city


Tonawanda News — Buckley said the rebids for portions of the stadium work will be released Thursday and are due back April 10. Those rebids will allow construction to go on as planned while reworking of the music room renovations continue. 

In the next few weeks, some preliminary construction of the stadium is set to begin with the installation of fencing and the removal of top soil, Buckley said. 

Meanwhile, Wendel architects will be working on the redesign of the music rooms after the bids for the music expansion came in more than $500,000 over budget. 

The likely plan as of now is to remodel those rooms and improve the acoustics instead of expanding the music wing entirely. 

“We are working on the acoustics and the drawings,” Brady said. “We have about three more weeks before we’ll be finished with them.”
