VOTERS TO DECIDE ON $97.47 MILLION SCHOOL BUDGET PROPOSAL WITH A 7.97 PERCENT TAX LEVY INCREASE ON MAY 21

Posted May 16 at 4:00pm

On Tuesday, May 21, Minisink Valley Central School District voters will decide on a $97.47 million proposed budget for the 2019-20 school year. This budget decreases spending by 2.53 percent, or $2.5 million, from the current year, and includes a 7.97 percent tax levy increase.

 

The proposed increase in the tax levy – the total amount of money to be raised through property taxes – is above the district’s maximum allowable level limit of -0.47 percent, as determined by the state’s tax cap law. As a result, the budget must have a super majority to pass – meaning, 60 percent plus one.

 

Residents will also decide on a bus purchase and elect three members to the Board of Education.
