School vote is Tuesday

The Wilson School Board voted unanimously Monday to approve a tentative general fund budget of $103,812,725 and a millage rate of 25.35 for the 2017-18 school year.

The local tax levy will increase 1.94 percent. It also increases spending by about 1.01 percent - $655,377 - even after $1.5 million in cuts were achieved through eliminating about 18 positions, including teaching positions, and administrator, custodians, clerical workers and a nurse.

If the budget fails to pass, the Board of Education has a second shot and could opt to submit the same budget or revise it and submit it to voters. 186-41. Brad Smith, the only candidate for the one seat on the board, received 197 votes. The budget increased.41 percent to $24,500,000. The projected tax levy would increase by $280,580 or 3.5 percent for a total levy of $8.3 million -below the state's 6.2 percent tax cap for Johnstown.

POTTSTOWN For the third consecutive year, the Pottstown School Board has been presented with a proposed budget that does not raise taxes, an accomplishment achieved largely by tapping reserve funds.

Yadira Ramos-Herbert ran unopposed for a 5 year term on the Library Board of Trustees.

Casey is looking forward to serving on the board as a mentor for new board members.

When school budget is defeated, the school board may decide submit a revised (or, more rarely, unrevised) budget for a second vote, or adopt an austerity budget. Next year, the Christmas break will be December 22 through January 2 - a total of 12 days.

Darin Moon, who challenged incumbent Linda Petersen for the seat in Zone 3, won 130 votes to Petersen's 47 votes.

In the highly contested race for the Williamsville Central School Board - where seven candidates were vying for election - the winners are Kurt Venator, Susan McClary and Philip Meyer, respectively garnering 2,025, 1,887, and 1,873 votes. Incumbent Stephen Sycdek and Robert Becker received 720 and 711 votes, respectively.

"The Board of Education is grateful to the community for its support of the 2017-18 budget", said Board of Education President Rachel Relkin.

Spending for the district increased by about $1.1 million.

It would also be the district's seventh tax increase in the last eight years. James MacFadden was the only candidate for school board and got 110 votes. "All the propositions will benefit the school district".

In Utica, voters will decide on a $173 million budget that contains no property tax increase.

Lynda Klippel was elected to a five-year term on the school board, defeating Carolyn Adamczyk, 264-118. A proposition to purchase buses passed 212-122.

In addition, the Northville Public Library budget passed, 244-132.

Sharon Springs's budget passed 121-15, and the bus vote was 111-22.

The district had proposed a budget of $9,750,912 - a 0.85 percent increase. Voters also approved the purchase of school buses and similar vehicles at a maximum cost of $200,000, with 150 voting in favor and 45 voting against. However, voters will be asked in a separate proposition to allow the district to replenish the fund with end-of-year surpluses for four more years, finishing out the fund's 10-year term.
