The Board of Education Approves Budget with No Tax Increase

Last night, the Middleburgh Board of Education approved a budget of $22,922,240 for the 2021-22 school year. This proposed budget increases spending by .52 percent, or $119,097 from the current year, and includes a tax levy increase of 0%. Now the measure will go to the voters to act. 

The 0 percent 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 1.76 percent, as determined by the state’s tax cap law. The proposed budget needs a simple majority vote to be approved.

Middleburgh Central School District residents will have the opportunity to vote on this school budget Tuesday, May 18 in the Jr. Sr. High School Gym Lobby from 12PM-9PM.
