Residents in the Owego-Apalachin Central School District will vote Tuesday on a revised budget for the 2011-12 school year.  The vote comes after residents defeated the district’s initial proposed budget on May 17th. The revised plan cuts about $67,000 from the defeated budget.  The revised budget is $732,556 less than the current school year’s budget and projects a tax levy increase of 1.51 percent.  If voters defeat the revised budget, the district will be required to go to a contingency budget and charge community groups for the use of school facilities according district officials.  Superintendent Dr. William Russell explains who some of the groups that would be affected.
