Fiorentini said that is the case because the city already makes yearly payments on several large loans, including its debt on the former city-owned Hale Hospital and bonds for Nettle School, the high school renovation, repairs to the downtown flood wall and to cap and close the old city landfill.
Without a new school, Scully said the district would have to find a place for about 500 Hunking students among the city’s already crowded schools. He said the additional transportation costs to bus those students out of Bradford would be exorbitant and that the city’s all-day kindergarten program would be among the casualties due to space limitations.
