GENESEO — In Monday’s Village Board Meeting concerns over the new Geneseo Central School District digital sign were briefly discussed.
Multiple Village Trustee’s were concerned over being left in the dark over the sign, which is digitally lit by LED lights.
“The school is not under the direction or regulation of any municipality,” said Tim Hayes, Geneseo Central School District Superintendent. “We are directed by the New York State Department of Education.”
According to Hayes, the digital sign is one of the finishing touches of the school districts comprehensive capitol improvement projects. Hayesstated that the sign cost $32,580, but $8,000 was contributed by the Student Association and the Sports Booster Club, all of which was approved by the School Board.
“We didn’t ignore the district location or the nature of our community when the school board approved the sign,” said Hayes. “In the past we had painted plywood signs and there was a strong feeling in our community that we needed some upgrades.”
