SCHOOL BUDGET VOTE: TUESDAY, MAY 15, NOON - 9PM


Voters to decide on $99.9 million proposed school budget with a 2.60 percent tax levy increase 

2018-19 proposal builds brighter future for our students

On Tuesday, May 15, voters in the Minisink Valley Central School District will decide on a $99.9 million proposed budget for the 2018-19 school year. This budget increases spending by 2.65 percent, or $2.6 million from the current year, and includes a 2.60 percent tax levy increase.

The proposed 2.60 percent increase in the tax levy — the total amount of money to be raised through property taxes — is 0.56 percent below the district’s 3.16 percent tax cap calculation, as defined by the state’s tax levy limit law. As a result, the budget can be approved by a simple majority (50 percent plus one).

“Our proposed budget ensures the continued enhancement of learning opportunities for all our students, while balancing the needs of our taxpayers and our fiscal responsibility,” said Superintendent Brian C. Monahan.

Residents will also decide on bus purchases (Proposition 2), and elect three members to the Board of Education. Four candidates will appear on the ballot.
