Elmira Heights Proposes New Budget For Voters

The Elmira Heights school board has agreed on a new budget to send back to voters in two weeks. The original plan, which called for a 6.9 percent tax hike, was shot down last month.
The revised budget calls for a 5.4 percent increase, just below the tax cap. In addition, a vacant English Language Arts position will be cut, as will field trips, and more money will come out of the reserves. A public hearing is scheduled for next Monday with the vote on the 18th. If this proposal doesn’t pass, the superintendent says they’ll likely have to cut at least 11 other jobs.
