Afton taxpayers face 1.99 percent tax levy increase; budget hearing Thursday

AFTON – On May 17, the Afton Central School District will ask district residents to approve a budget for the 2011-12 academic year totaling $14,724,301.

The tentative spending plan, which was adopted by the district’s board of education on April 21, represents a $273,362, or 1.89 percent, increase in spending over the current year’s budget.



Members of the school community will have the opportunity to learn more about the proposed budget at a hearing at 7 p.m. Thursday in the old high school gymnasium. This is a change of venue for the meeting, which was initially slated to take place in the school’s auditorium.

“This has been the most difficult budget year since I became a superintendent,” said Superintendent Betty Briggs.
