SOMERS, N.Y.-With final numbers still developing in multiple areas, the contours of a proposed budget for Somers public schools emerged for public viewing last week.
Spending for the first time would top $90 million, supported by some $77 million in property taxes and about $13 million coming from state aid and other sources such as interest income, facilities rentals and sales tax revenues.
The proposed budget remains a work in progress, Kenneth Crowley, the Somers Central School District’s assistant superintendent for business, emphasized at the Feb. 13 school board meeting and a follow-up email.
“We are not totally finished with the budget,” he pointed out in the email later in the week. “There is still some tweaking to be done.”
Still, he spelled out the initial outlines of the district’s 2018-19 financial plan in his presentation at the Somers Middle School. A copy is available online (visit TAPinto Somers for a link).
A vote on the budget is scheduled for May 15, a week after a public hearing on the plan.
