DOLGEVILLE, N.Y. -- Dolgeville Central School District rejected the more than $19 million budget proposal.

If passed, it would have meant an 11 percent tax rate increase for residents, and a $2.6 million budget gap.

A total of 11 positions could be cut from the school district. This includes 7 teaching positions, 2 school counselors, and English teacher and an elementary school teacher.

Residents in the district did approve a student Board of Education member. 

James "Bob" Schmid was elected to a 5 year term on the school board.
