Now that the Three Village Central School District failed to get a supermajority of voters to approve the $178.6 million budget, the district has multiple ways to proceed:
- It can put the same budget up for a revote, which would again require a supermajority of voters to approve it.
- It can put a revised budget of up for a vote.
- It can go right to a contingency budget with a 0 percent tax levy increase, which would require about $5.7 million more in cuts.
Interim superintendent Neil Lederer has said in the past he will recommend the school board adopt a budget at the tax levy increase cap of 2.99 percent. Three Village's tax cap is higher than 2 percent for reasons including the decreased about of state aid the district will receive from New York State coffers.
The second vote will take place on June 19. What do you support? Log in to Patch and vote in the poll or add a comment below.
