The Tuckahoe School District is putting an $18.8 million budget proposal up before voters May 20, up 1.9 percent over last year. The tax levy is expected to increase by 2.5 percent, which is under the state tax cap when exclusions are applied.
If approved, taxes in the district would rise from $7.37 per $1,000 of assessed valuation to $7.53 per $1,000, up 2.2 percent.
School Board President Robert Grisnik, the pharmacist at Southrifty Drugs, is running unopposed.
Voting will take place at the school from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. The district’s full budget statement is online here.
