Budget Newsletter and Information

On Tuesday, May 21, Middleburgh Central School District residents approved a $24,900,000 budget for the 2024-25 school year by a margin of 69.9% in favor to 30.1% opposed. The budget increases spending by 2.42%, or $587,510 from the current year, and includes a tax levy increase of $153,836 or 1.50%. Since the tax levy increase (the total amount of money to be raised through property taxes) is less than the district’s maximum allowable levy limit of 2.01%, the proposed budget needed only a simple majority vote to be approved.

Additional Propositions

Middleburgh residents approved a proposition for the purchase of three, 65-passenger diesel buses not to exceed $488,000.

Voters approved the proposal of a 10-year Bus and Vehicle Reserve fund not to exceed $2 million.  This reserve will allow the district to prepare for the purchase or acquisition of school buses and charging stations that meet the NY State legislature’s goal of having a zero-emission bus fleet by 2035.  

Voters approved the proposition to allocate up to $200,000 from the 2023-2024 unappropriated fund balance to the Repair Reserve Fund.
