The Nyack Public Schools referendum for $26.4 million in spending on infrastructure, safety and educational projects will go to the public Oct. 29.
The school district is making absentee ballots available for those who will be away the day of the vote or those who are disabled. Those interested should contact Nyack Public Schools District Clerk Gail Fleur at (845) 353-7013. Once an application is filled out, the district will send out a ballot that must be returned by Oct. 29. Applications and ballots cannot be mailed less than seven days before the vote.
If the referendum is approved, the district would spend $5 million in capital reserves and bond for the remaining $21.4 million to pay for the projects. For more details on the initial proposal for the referendum and the projects involved, read this report on Patch.

The third of three bond information forums will be held 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 16 at Nyack High School.
