East Ramapo Residents Head To Polls To Vote On School Budget


ramapo-school-boardEast Ramapo – Taxpayers in the East Ramapo school district are heading to the polls today for a school budget revote.

In May, voters rejected the $190 million school spending plan. The original budget cut staff, programs and full-day kindergarten.

Under the state’s new tax cap law, school districts only get two tries to approve a budget. Officials say if the revised budget doesn’t pass, the district may be forced to make even more drastic cuts.

  1. Since the budget was defeated last time, and by a large majority, it is wrong of the board to put up the same budget and hope that it slips by with no one noticing. The budget as proposed includes a 1.9% tax increase. If it gets defeated, they are required to adopt a budget with no tax increase.
