PUBLIC HEARING ON SCHOOL BUDGET
The final Public Hearing and Presentation on the Superintendent’s Proposed $208,750,000 2016-17 Budget for the White Plains City School District will be held on Monday, May 9, 2016, at 7:30 P.M. at Education House, 5 Homeside Lane.
The public vote on the budget, a capital project proposition and re-election of two School Board members, Sheryl Brady and Charles Norris, (the only candidates to file petitions to run), will take place on Tuesday, May 17th, from Noon to 9 P.M. at six voting locations.
The proposition on the ballot will include establishing a $25,000,000 reserve and reads thus:
“Shall the proposition set forth in the notice of this meeting authorizing the establishment of a capital reserve fund with an ultimate amount of $25,000,000, a term of 10 years, and annual appropriation of available fund balance and other legally available funds to such Reserve Fund, be approved?”
Please note: due to the closing of Fire Station #5, the new polling place in that area will be the Battle Hill Community Room.
Information on the Budget is available on the district’s website, www.whiteplainspublicschools.org or in each school building.
