POLLS OPEN TUESDAY, MAY 16, FROM 12PM-9PM IN THE JR./SR. HIGH SCHOOL GYM LOBBY
Middleburgh School District residents should be on the lookout this week for the 2023-24 School Budget Newsletter.
A digital copy is available here.
Middleburgh voters will be asked to consider a $24 million budget proposal for the 2023-24 school year. The proposed budget increases spending by 2.10%, or $501,113 from the current year, and includes a tax levy increase of $151,563 or 1.50%. Since the tax levy increase (the total amount to be raised through property taxes) is less than the district’s maximum allowable levy limit of 3.46%, the proposed budget needs a simple majority vote to be approved.
Residents will also vote on three propositions. One proposition will be for the purchase of one 60-passenger bus, one 30-passenger bus (wheelchair accessible), and one minivan for pupil transportation. Voters will also consider establishing a Capital Reserve Fund and the transfer of funds to the Repair Reserve Fund.
Board of Education
There is also one open seat on the Board of Education with two candidates running. The candidate with the most votes will earn a three-year term (expiring June 30, 2026). The names will appear in this order on the ballot:
Additional information about the candidates can be found on the Budget and Taxes page.
