Fort Plain Central School District residents
voted in support of the district’s 2016-17 school budget Tuesday by
a vote of 173 to 31. The approved
$19.5 million plan calls for a 2.68 percent increase over the
2015-16 spending plan, but carries no increase in the tax levy.
“I’d like to thank all of our residents who
participated in this year's vote,” said Superintendent David Ziskin.
Also on the ballot:
• Board of Education: Voters re-elected two board members. Ronald F.
Kardash received 176 votes and L. Joseph Bartholomew received 170.
• School vehicle proposition: Residents
approved a school vehicle proposition by a vote of to 158 to 45. The
proposition allows the district to purchase school vehicles at a
total cost not to exceed $250,000. The money comes from Fort Plain's
bus/transportation reserve fund approved by voters in 2013 and there
is no impact on local taxes.
