DOLGEVILLE, NY – The Dolgeville Central School District held a public hearing on the newly proposed school budget Tuesday.
The original budget was defeated by voters back in May.
The new budget amount is a little over $18.9 million and calls for a 5.95 tax levy increase.
It also calls for more staffing cuts.
These cuts are in addition to the ones that were proposed in the original budget.
The reason for the cuts and tax levy increase?
The school has a $2.6 million deficit.
Salisbury resident Dick Hubalek voiced his concerns on the budget.
“At the end of the day, you just can’t keep spending money thinking the cash cow is going to be there year after year after year. Trying to swallow an over 5% budget, that’s not candy in people’s mouths. It’s not what they want to hear.”
A vote on the new budget will take place on June 18.
If the new budget is defeated, a contingency budget will have to be implemented.
