“It is hard to control the temperatures,” Cringle said.

The district further plans to install water filtration systems, replace fire-alarm and phone systems and upgrade bathrooms and doors to comply with the Americans with Disability act.

Other work includes rood repairs at Morrisonville Elementary School, the Middle School and bus garage.

“What we have done in light of the poor economy is we have scaled our project back,” Cringle said.

Saranac voters defeated a $17.5 million project in February 2010.

“I think everyone recognizes the importance of maintaining the facilities,” Cringle said. “In the long run it will be much better for everyone, and we are trying to do this in small steps, addressing immediate areas and limiting it to energy, health and safety.”
