Taconic Hills voters to decide on smaller budget, many propositions

May 10, 2023 12:21 pm

Jammel Cutler reports in Columbia-Greene Media that the Taconic Hills Board of Education is proposing a budget of $38,392,035, a 3.26 percent decrease from last year’s budget. It comes with a 2.29 percent tax levy decrease. The story does not say what is being cut to lower the budget total. Voters are also being asked to decide whether the school purchases two school vehicles for student transportation, one pick-up truck with a plow and sander, and one diesel bus at a maximum cost of $251,000. Another proposition before voters is whether to buy ten zero- emission buses for student transportation at a cost of $4,079,051. New York State is mandating that all new school buses purchased must be zero emission by 2027. Another proposition asks voters if they want to spend $700,000 for electric bus charging including a new electrical transformer, electrical switchgear, panel boards, charging pedestals, transfer switch, wiring, underground trenching concrete and asphalt pavement. Voters cast ballots from noon to 9 p.m. May 16 at the Taconic Hills Central School District Veterans Community Room. Read more about this story at HudsonValley360.com.
