Weedsport school district budget includes tax levy hike, UPK program

The Weedsport Central School District’s 2017-2018 budget includes a 1.98-percent tax levy increase.

The budget was finalized at a school board meeting Monday. The state property tax cap set for the district this year was 3.47 percent.

The overall budget is $20,147,217, a 1.21-percent hike from the previous year.

“That’s our lowest budget-to-budget increase since 2012 to 2013,” superintendent Shaun O’Connor said.

O’Connor and assistant superintendent for business Doug Tomandl said the universal pre-kindergarten program the district has set for the fall was one of the biggest cost drivers.
