YORKTOWN, N.Y. - Yorktown School District voters overwhelmingly approved a $97.9 million budget with a tax rate decrease of 0.22 percent and a tax levy increase of 0.09 percent, according to unofficial results provided by District Clerk Yvette Segal.
The district also asked voters permission to remove $4 million from its capital reserve fund. The fund was created last year, but voters must authorize all withdrawals. The money will be spent on facility upgrades to the servery at Brookside; the nurse’s suite at Mohansic; corridor lighting and flooring at Crompond; an ESTEAM Lab at Mildred E. Strang; a cooling tower replacement at Mildred E. Strang; second-floor air conditioning at Yorktown High School; and gymnasium bleacher replacement and other repairs at Yorktown High School.
CAPITAL RESERVE FUND WITHDRAWAL
The Yorktown school board race was uncontested as incumbents Jackie Carbone, Peter Bisaccia and Lisa Rolle ran for re-election. As the lowest vote-getter, Rolle wins the unexpired term of Thomas Donatelli, which ends June 30, 2019. Carbone and Bisaccia won three-year terms that end in 2021.
