Wow, what a difference a year and a $14 Million reduction makes.

Who would have thought that this kind of across-the-board, bilateral unity could be found in Alton when it came to spending ANY money on improving ACS facilities.

This time last year all we had was dissension and recrimination.

This year it appears that everybody, whether ‘concerned-taxpayer’, ACS parent, Democrat, Republican, ACS staff, Tea Partier, are all, metaphorically holding hands and singing Kumbaya. This portends for a near 100% majority at the ballot. Who would have thought.

Wow. I did a bit of research. Zero opposition. No Facebook snipes, sponsored leaflets, letters to the media. This is good. But, I am a tad surprised. As far as I can see this $4.2 Million initiative doesn’t address any kind of renovation to the existing older building — e.g., enhancing the ventilation or getting proper industrial-grade Carbon Monoxide detectors. But, it is possible that money for such renovations is already there doing nothing, sitting collecting 0.02% interest.

It is amazing that the fractious, factious and fustian Alton Central School Board, who can’t even agree on ‘Common Core‘, came together on this $3.9 Million article and passed it, 3-0, with NO dissenters. Wow. Wonder what they are up to? Very unlike them to agree on something major like this ‘unanimously’ — though I think the Board is supposed to have more than 3 people on it.

I haven’t seen any images of what this new addition is going to look like. I am sure that our well compensated and apparently infallible (not to mention Teflon-coated) Architect must have done some works-of-art. Maybe they are already hanging at the Currier.

So let the building start …
