Voters Approve 2023-24 school budget

On Tuesday, May 16, Middleburgh Central School District residents approved a $24,312,490 budget for the 2023-24 school year by a margin of 60.2% in favor to 39.8% opposed. The tally includes absentee ballots. The 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 of money to be raised through property taxes) is less than the district’s maximum allowable levy limit of 3.46%, the budget needed only a simple majority vote to be approved.

Bonnie Snyder was elected to a three-year seat on the Middleburgh Board of Education.
