The Benicia Unified School District Board of Trustees voted Thursday to OK a report outlining an array of repairs and expenses the district will face in the next five years.
Trustees approved the Five-Year Facility Ass-essment Report and gave Superintendent Janice Adams direction on how to begin seeking funding options.
In other business, the board withdrew consideration to have trustees’ dental benefits restored.
The five-year report lists items in three categories: deferred maintenance, major repair and replacement, estimated to cost $13,294,800; deferred maintenance adjusted for capital improvements — a higher level of deferred maintenance — estimated to cost $32,664,804; and deferred maintenance adjusted for capital improvements and new construction, or facility needs that would be new to the district, at an estimated cost of $49,611,259.
