HABROUCK HEIGHTS, N.J. — Hasbrouck Heights residents will vote on a referendum permitting the Board of Education to issue bonds for the $6.7 million bond on Tuesday.

The bond would upgrade the heating and ventilation systems in the district's elementary schools and Junior/Senior High School.

If the issue passes, the district will pay $4.4. million towards the upgrades, with an additional $2.3 million coming from the state Department of education through a Regular Operating District grant.

The tax impact on residents would break down to an added $70 a year, or $5.87 per month," which BOE President Joe Samperi believes is a great deal.

"This is not a lot of money to provide our children with a better air quality and learning environment for years to come," Samperi told Daily Voice.

The work to be done on each school is as follows:

Lincoln and Euclid Elementary Schools

  • New rooftop energy recovery ventilator unit
  • New ductwork, registers and grilles
  • New direct digital controls tied into building management system
  • All classrooms shall be code compliant for ventilation
  • Proper monitoring and energy conservation of all equipment

Hasbrouck Heights Junior/Senior High School

  • New high performance condensing hot water boilers
  • New hot water piping
  • New unit ventilators and panel radiators
  • New heating & ventilation units in old gym
  • New direct digital controls tied into building management system
  • All classrooms shall be code compliant for ventilation
  • Proper monitoring and energy conservation of all equipment

If the issue passes, work on the schools will begin in the summer of 2017.
