WESTMORELAND, N.Y. -- A proposed 1.81 percent spending increase has passed in the Westmoreland Central School District.

Officials with the school say that's because the cost of living increased, and they want to buy three new buses.

There's also a 2 percent tax increase for residents.

There were also four open seats on the board, and four incumbents were running for those -- Pamela Murphy, Heather Johnson, Joseph Vanderhoff, and Christine Calogero.
