A budget calling for a 2.49 percent tax levy increase will be put to Canandaigua City School District voters in May.
The Board of Education Thursday, with two members absent, unanimously approved a 2018-19 spending plan of $76 million, a 2.84 percent increase over this year’s $73.9 budget.
The tax levy portion would be $45.4 million, up from $44.3 million. The 2.49 percent increase is more than half a percent under the district’s cap of 3.07, calculated according to a state formula.
Matt Fitch, assistant superintendent of business, said the estimated tax rate would be $19.32 per $1,000 of assessed valuation, but that is likely to come down after the latest assessments are released this summer.
He said the annual tax bill for a $150,000 home, minus STAR exemptions, is projected at $2,304 — an increase of $58.50, based on current assessments, or $4.88 per month.
