Wilson School Board proposes 1.6 percent tax increase


In the Yorktown School District, voters approved the $98.17 million budget, 568-125, along with the establishment of a capital reserve fund, 585-107. The budget has a spending increase of about 1.7 percent from the current year's budget.

Voters also approved, in a vote of 241 to 96, a proposition allowing East Hampton to establish a capital reserve fund for future districtwide improvements related to growing enrollment, property acquisition, and the replacement of technology and telecommunications equipment, infrastructure, and software. They selected incumbent Board of Education member Vincent Cancemi with 872 votes, according to unofficial ballot numbers provided by the district. Heather Welch received 694 votes; Alan Barone drew 67. The budget, he said, obviously also gives the district the capacity to implement new programs, and said Tuesday's vote is proof that the community believes in the path that the district is on.

Brian Villante, the school board president, was re-elected with 19 votes.

The library budget passed with 2,083 votes (4.6%).

Tina Silverman will be the GOP's nominee for town assessor, challenging veteran Democratic incumbent Eugene DePasquale, one of two Democrats on the three-seat panel of tax assessors.

However, Ljungberg said he doesn't feel the budget defeat Tuesday was due to the increases, calling the proposal very conservative. The district, which has 206 buses that provide transportation to 13,000 students per year to public, private, and parochial schools, typically replaces at least 20 buses each year.

In personnel matters, the board approved the retirements of Edith VanGorder, secretary, after 32 years of service; Frederick Proper, high school drafting teacher, after 17 years of service; Dennis Thiel, high school computer fix teacher, after 18 years of service; and Nancy Bridge, high school health professions teacher, after 27 years of service. The new price will be $2.80, which amounts to a $9 per student yearly increase.

In 2018, there will be one seat on the school board up for election. The budget increases the district's tax levy by $192,753, up 1.9 percent to $10.3 million - less than the NY state property tax cap for the district.

The lefty-hander is expected to miss a month. - Gardner was 3-for-5 with a double and eighth-inning solo homer. The Yankees had momentum after they opened the inning with four straight hits and then an intentional walk.

Lyndonville also had three other propositions on the budget vote.

A public hearing on the budget was held on May 3 at Howell Middle School North.

He was also asked to comment on the wide margin of voter approval of the budget. A proposition to purchase a school bus passed 385-90.

Todd McFee (179 votes), Jeffrey L. Jones (173) and David Przestrzelski (161) were all re-elected to three-year school board terms.

Districts like Liverpool tell NewsChannel9 that they will balance the budget with fund balance dollars, but that it is not a sustainable measure.

The increase in spending comes in the face of a $1.8 million loss in total assessed property value in the borough, translating into a revenue loss of $72,019.

And other decisions will be made today besides just the fate of budgets. David Locastro (504) and Margaret Vensel (612) were elected to three-year terms on the school board.
