Dallas School Board proposes new preliminary budget with tax increase

Credit marc jacops

The time has come for voters in school districts across the region to decide on 2018-19 school budgets.

Those in the Lansingburgh Central School District will vote on a $50,696,799 budget, representing an 8.59 percent increase. The board also shaved a mill off the tax rate a year ago. For instance, a ballot proposition in Massapequa seeks approval to allot $15.3 million for an aquatic center at Berner Middle School.

District residents can vote on the proposed budget at the schoolhouse at 7:30 p.m. The law limits to $10,000 the amount of state and local taxes that property owners can deduct on their federal income taxes.

In compliance with the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing, the Board will consider declaring the District's need for fully qualified educators and will consider approving previously-reviewed new science course materials that would be used next year at Martinez Junior High School. Each seat carries a three-year term. Seeking re-election are trustee Robert Thomann, of 16 Neighborhood Drive; James Mooney, of 6 Redwood Road; and Raymond Maclary, of 7 Willow Lane.

It's a tough situation many schools districts have faced.

The proposed budget would increase the tax rate to 13.6338 mills.

One noticeable development can be seen in the surprisingly high number of candidates running for school board seats. The candidates include incumbents Amy Mayo and Brian Judycki and challenger John Stewart.

Because of those potential cap-piercings, in those two districts the proposed budgets for 2018-19 must be OK'd by 60 percent of those voting to pass, rather than a simple majority.

The creation of a six member board Inter-local Board that would have the authority to increase spending of the initial $2.1 million dollars by up to 5% per year.

The district also received a hike in state aid of $805,339, which brings the total state aid figure to $20.44 million, or 62.65 percent of the total budget.

Parents and students attend a board of education meeting in New Haven on Monday, May 14th, 2018. Voting on a school budget is less urgent for many people now that the state has instituted a tax cap. Overall spending would increase by 2.1 percent, or $1.11 million.

Voters will choose four candidates to serve on the Board of Education.

Voting will be held Tuesday between noon and 9 p.m.at the Vernon Town Offices, Verona Fire Station, and Sherrill Court Facility.
