New radios, sound system at Taconic Hills

Lorna Cherot Littleway reports in The Columbia Paper the Taconic Hills School District Board of Education took several steps to clear up communications at their Oct. 18 meeting. The Craryville-based school agreed to rent 36 radios for buses from Goosetown Enterprises, of Congers, NY, for $1,262 a month. They are spending more than $100 than they used to, district Transportation Supervisor Richard Viebrock said, for newer radios and maintenance services. The board is also repairing the auditorium sound system, which has been silent since the summer, at a cost of $19,000. In non-communication news, the board approved spending up to $18,000 to fix the two chillers that cool the district’s buildings. And the board is now allowing Taconic Hills students to wear hats as they enter school and in building corridors. School board President Christine Perry said that it is “more welcoming in the morning” instead of being told to “take off your hat.” The Taconic Hills School District Board of Education meets next at 6:30 p.m. Wed., Nov. 15 in the Board Room.
