NEW BERLIN – Taxpayers in the Unadilla Valley Central School District will have the chance to vote on a revised school budget from noon to 8 p.m. tomorrow.
The proposal of $19,677,744 with an 2.4 percent increase on the tax levy was created by the board of education after the May vote did not pass with a super-majority.
The new budget is $440,608 less than the first budget, and the tax levy has been brought below the state tax cap, meaning it will only need a simple majority to pass.
Superintendent Robert Mackey said the board was able to save sports, clubs and kindergarten, but the decrease in spending still came at a cost.
“Our goal was to limit as much as possible the negative impacts on students and staff,” he said. “We’re also trying not to impede the ability of the district to grow and make achievements ... there’s a lot of progress in this area.”
