WESTMORELAND, NY - The Westmoreland central school board presented its 2019-2020 budget at a public hearing Tuesday.

Only one person showed up.

The proposed $22.53 million budget calls for a spending increase of 1.81%.

It also calls for a 1.99% Tax increase.

Westmoreland school superintendent Rocco Migliori said the apparent lack of interest does not concern him.

“We have a lot of traffic on our website, the information has been posted on there for probably a month. We’ve sent newsletters home. I think people are pretty in tune to what’s happening. People are reading their emails. They’re getting their information in much different ways now.”

Residents will have the chance to vote on the budget on Tuesday, May 21 in the lobby of the high school gymnasium.
