A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held yesterday at P.S. 199 to celebrate newly renovated bathrooms at the school.
The renovations came at a cost of $150,000, and were funded through Council Member Van Bramer’s 2016-2017 participatory budgeting cycle.
“Last year, this project received the second highest number of votes from residents of my district and I am so pleased to see it come to fruition,” said Council Member Van Bramer in a statement.
The project item received more than 2,500 votes on the 2017 ballot, and allocated $450,000 to make essential repairs and upgrades to two restroom facilities each at P.S. 112, P.S. 12 and P.S. 199.
“This will allow our students to enjoy the beautiful new restrooms for many years,” said Anthony Inzerillo, P.S. 199’s principal.
