The five school districts failed to get the 60% supermajority needed to override the tax cap.
The Germantown School District in Columbia County will vote on a 1.75 percent tax increase. The tax increase is down from a 5.2 increase in May.
In the Saratoga County Town of Stillwater, the revised budget will need a supermajority to pass. Property taxes would increase by 1.49 percent. If the budget is defeated, all of the districts will be forced to adopt a contingent budget.
Property owners in the Oppenheim Ephratah School District in Fulton County face a 2.8 percent tax levy increase. The taxes are down from 4.5 percent and only require a simple majority to pass.
In Montgomery County, the Fonda-Fultonville Central School District is facing a 3.5 percent tax levy increase. The taxes are down from a 7.98 percent increase.
The Cobleskill-Richmondville School District in Schoharie County is facing a 2.72 percent levy increase. The original proposal had a 4.54 percent tax increase. An additional $256,000 had to be cut from the budget. On Monday night, dozens of people rallied in Cobleskill to encourage voters to pass the budget. If it does not pass, the school district will be forced to cut an additional $383,000 from the budget. That will almost guarantee loss of all sports, extracurricular, elective programs, and upper level academic programs.
