WHITESBORO, N.Y.-- Voters in the Whitesboro Central School District have voted to approve their budget, along with two propositions.

The $68 million dollar budget will increase taxes 1.8 percent for residents.

The first proposition will allow the school to purchase three new school buses at a cost of $510,000.

The second proposition will allow the school to use $1.5 million dollars from their capital fund reserve to update and upgrade school security throughout the district.

Of the six candidates running for the board of education, incumbents Michael Head, Steven Szatko, and Thomas Schoen Jr. will receive a three-year term. Jonathan Henderson won the remaining two years of another vacated board position.
