No tax levy increase in proposed 2017-18 budget

Schuylerville residents will go to the polls on Tuesday, May 16, to vote on a proposed $34.8 million budget for the 2017-18 school year. The proposed budget calls for a 2.10 percent spending increase and an estimated tax levy increase of zero percent for the second consecutive year, which is below the district’s calculated tax levy cap of 2.13 percent. Tax rates for individual properties will be determined over the summer once equalization rates and assessments are available for the district’s seven towns.

As part of the May 16 vote, residents will also select two Board of Education members, consider two propositions and vote in the Schuylerville Public Library Board of Trustees election.

“We feel we have delivered a budget that maintains and improves opportunities for our students while being mindful of the impact on taxpayers,” said Jack Macica, Board of Education President.
