Revised figures show a maximum 3.05% tax increase – $8.74 per month for typical home

MAY 15, 2017

The community is reminded of the vote being held from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. in the high school gymnasium.

You will consider the 2017-18 budget, a bus purchase proposal and select three of four Board of Education candidates.

The budget would increase guidance services, social studies teaching, BOCES tuition spending  for popular programs like New Visions, Tech Valley High School and Career and Technical education and would also create a new elementary skills program for kindergartners with special needs.

Revised figures show that the budget will increase tax by a maximum of 3.05 percent, instead of the 3.61% publicized previously.

With the lower projection, tax bills on a home assessed at $160,000 would increase by a maximum of $104.89 per year or $8.74 per month.
