Proposed plan restores, enhances programs; stays under tax levy limit at 1.96 percent

Board of Education adopts $98.5 million spending plan for 2017-18

April 12, 2017—On Tuesday, May 16, Guilderland Central School District residents will head to the polls to vote on a $98,484,110 budget for the 2017-18 school year. The proposed budget, adopted by the Board of Education on April 11, includes an increase in spending of $1,894,065, or 1.96 percent, over the current year’s budget. If approved by voters, it would result in a 2.11 percent tax levy increase in the coming year—below the district’s maximum allowable tax levy limit as calculated under the state’s “tax cap” formula.

Due to projected assessment growth within the district, tax rates are estimated to increase by less than one percent, at 0.74.61 percent, for residents of the school district.

A closer look at the proposed spending plan will be posted to this story shortly.
