Three Village School Budget Passes

Three Village residents approved the school district’s $188.1 million proposed budget Tuesday by a margin of 2326-843. 

The budget calls for a 1.91 percent increase in spending over the current year and carries a 1.27 percent tax levy increase, which is within the state's tax cap. The average homeowner in the district will pay about an additional $130 in school taxes next year. 

There were no contested school board elections this year. Incumbents Inger Germano, Irene Gische and Jeffrey Kerman all ran unopposed and were re-elected.

Of course it passed. It always does. Wonder why enrollment in TV is down? Nobody can afford to live here because of the school taxes.

Agreed, and let us not forget the bond that past as well..and add in how much CC is costing us.

It always passes because of racism. People willing to pay huge property taxes to keep "them" out of their neighborhood. I can't wait until the next February bond. I saw some rotted columns at Gelinas and all of the schools can use professional sports facilities with AstroTurf aluminum bleachers and lit scoreboards. I think it's about time all the schools get CAC too. Those AC's hanging out of the buildings are an eyesore.

Those who can, do it. Those who can't, teach it.
