Presentation to be held on proposed $4m bond for Underhill school renovation


HOOKSETT — Voters will be asked whether to seek a bond to make repairs to two of the town’s schools at this year’s town meeting.

Members decided to have SAU 15 administrators draft a warrant for a roughly $4 million bond to add and renovate the Fred C. Underhill Elementary School.

The work will include reconfiguring the existing space to accommodate full-day kindergarten program, removing the portable classrooms, creating additional parking, doing interior and exterior safety updates, and redesigning the playground.

The bond would be paid off over 10 years.

If approved, the work will start this summer in hopes of having it completed by the fall of 2019. At that point, the full-day kindergarten program would also start.

A separate bond would also help to pay for drainage work being proposed for the athletic fields at the David R. Cawley Middle School. The hope is that this would would help fix some of the flooding problems that have been problematic over the years.

Fixing them will cost just over $324,000 and the warrant article will direct the money come from any unexpended funds from this year’s budget. There will be two presentations made in the coming weeks about both of the projects and full-day kindergarten.

The first will be on Jan. 23 and the other will be on Feb. 21. Both will be held at Underhill School at 7 p.m.

Information, as well as the presentations, will be posted on the SAU 15 website.

The town’s budget committee will discuss these and the other warrant articles from the school district at their Tuesday meeting.
