On state budget day, voters of the Otselic Valley Central School District rejected a $7,839,634 budget that reflected a 4.97 percent increase in expenditures and an 8.29 percent increase in the tax levy. The measure was defeated, 103 to 134. The revised budget voted on today reflects small changes, with $20,000 less to be spent overall. The drivers’ education program has been removed for the 2006 year.
