School Board Election & Budget Vote: May 16th

April 30th, 2017 · No Comments

Voting for five open seats on the school board, adoption of the annual school budget and a school bus purchase resolution will take place on Tuesday, May 16th between 12:00 noon and 9:00 pm at the Gymnasium of the Junior-Senior high school building on Buckley Road in Whitehall.

Under the proposed budget the school district is proposing to increase spending by $602,383 which represents an increase of 3.92 percent from this year. The tax levy is expected to rise 2.51 percent or $133,267 with the remainder coming from increases in state taxes.

Voters will also be asked to approve the purchase of two school buses, not to exceed the cost of $220,000.

I expect to be sending out questionnaires to all the candidates running for the school board in the next few days.

A public hearing will be held on Monday, May 8th at 6:00 pm for those with questions concerning the budget and/or vote.
