ORANGE COUNTY – Orange County Commissioners will likely approve $10.5 million dollars worth of financing to pay for capital projects when the board meets Tuesday.

About half of that will go to build a new science wing at CulbrethMiddle School. Another $1.7 million will be used to renovate one floor of the HistoricWhittedBuilding to create a meeting space for local government.

Other investments include $1.4 million in technology upgrades and $1.2 million to improve the VIPER radio system used by emergency personnel.

The board will also discuss how to fund rural curb-side recycling and consider hiring a consultant to evaluate alternative sentencing programs.

The board meets Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. at the Southern Human Services Center on Homestead Road.
