Bridgehampton Budget Vote

Bridgehampton is just one of two districts on the East End that will pierce the New York State tax levy cap if their budget is approved May 20. Because the district is piercing the cap, the budget will need a 60 percent approval rating from voters in order to pass.

Next year’s proposed 12.3 million budget is up $1.1 million from this year, a 9.9 percent increase. The tax levy will increase 8.8 percent if the budget is approved.

If approved, taxpayers will pay $1.67 per $1,000 of assessed valuation, up 7.7 percent from last year.

Three candidates, all newcomers, are vying for two seats on Bridgehampton’s board, including Michael Gomberg, Jeffrey Mansfield and Kathleen McCleland-Goldman.

Voting will take place from 2 to 8 p.m. in the Bridgehampton School Gymnasium. The district’s full budget statement is online here.
