May 15, 2014

Members of the Monticello Central School District Board of Education unanimously adopted a 2014-15 school budget proposal that calls for a 3.73 percent spending increase over the 2013-14 budget.

The proposed budget utilizes $5.5 million in fund balance and reserves to offset expenditures and would increase the tax levy by 1.41 percent, within the district's tax levy cap.

In addition to the proposed spending plan, voters will also be asked to select three Board of Education members and approve two bond proposals. Proposition #2 asks voters to consider spending $550,000 to purchase new buses. Proposition #3 requests voters to approve usage of $750,000 of the district's undesignated fund balance to upgrade security district wide.

Qualified residents will vote on the proposed $83,178,573 spending plan on Tuesday, May 20. Polls are open 8 a.m. - 8 p.m. at the following voting locations:

Thompson/District #1 - RJK Middle School
Bethel/District #2 - Duggan Community Center
Mamakating/District #3 - Chase Elementary School
Rock Hill/District #4 - Rock Hill Fire Department
