Finally, John Mason reported in the Register Star the Germantown Central School District Board of Education agreed to amend its 2012-13 budget proposal and reduce the proposed tax levy increase to 1.75 percent, well within the limits of the state mandated property tax cap. Voters will return to the polls June 19 for a second vote, following the defeat of the board's first spending plan, May 15. Germantown was one of 24 budgets defeated statewide, according to the New York State United Teachers. The appropriations and expenditures details of the new budget are forthcoming, as the result of a number of staffing adjustments made by the board this week, Mason writes.
