The board of education is reviewing 11 proposed capital improvement projects for the 2012-13 school year during their meeting Monday night.
The highest-ticket item under review is a new boiler for Hebron Avenue Elementary School, the third elementary school to look for a new boiler in the last three years. The $650,000 cost of the boiler is similar to the price tag of the past projects at Buttonball and Hopewell elementary schools.
Other proposed projects include $150,000 to replace camera and video recording systems for upgraded security in the schools. A $100,000 project would install a generator at the school district’s bus yard so that fuel could be pumped during large-scale power outages. Additional generators would provide power to certain parts of the schools in town.

The meeting will take place at 7:30 p.m. in the town council chambers of Town Hall.
