LEWISBORO, N.Y. Residents of the Katonah-Lewisboro School District will go to the polls Tuesday to vote on the proposed 2012-13 school budget, a capital improvement proposition and to choose two new board of education trustees.
The polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. at Increase Miller Elementary, 186 Waccabuc Road, Goldens Bridge; Katonah Elementary, 106 Huntsville Road, Katonah; Lewisboro Elementary, 79 Bouton Road, South Salem, and Meadow Pond Elementary, 185 Smith Ridge Road, South Salem.
The 2012-13 budget is a approximately $113 million spending package that calls for a 2.1 percent increase in the tax levy. It would eliminate 24 full-time jobs, including nine teaching positions. It is an increase of 1.8 percent from last years spending package.
Voters also will have their say on a $5.9 million proposition for building renovations and improvements. The proposition addresses approximately 20 percent of a five-year capital improvement plan, estimated at $29.6 million, that was completed by an external firm in order to address the districts future needs. The projects included in this proposition include replacing boilers, repairing roofs and upgrading playgrounds.
In the school board race, voters will have a choice of four candidates Stephanie Tobin, Marjorie Schiff, Richard Delin and Mindy Yanish to fill two seats.
