STILLWATER, N.Y. - Voters in the Stillwater Central School District needed a super majority to approve the budget of 60 percent or more.
Tuesday night, with a vote of 625 to 390, the budget passed with a 62 percent majority.
Many voters News10 talked with say they didn't think twice about voting "yes".
The original budget came with opposition to the 3.08 percent tax levy increase, voted down in May by 27 votes.
The district's superintendent, Stan Maziejka, says if the budget had not passed, cuts to staffing, sports and extracurricular activities were at risk.
Maziejka says the district was able to get a lower tax levy increase by re-financing the district's debt at a lower rate.
