Statewide, twenty-nine school budgets were adopted on the second try yesterday and two failed, according to the New York State School Boards Association.
The two districts whose budgets failed were Wilson in Niagara County and Remsen in Oneida County. Wilson’s budget plan would have increased the tax levy by 2 percent. Remsen’s would have required a 2.26 percent hike in the property-tax levy.
School districts whose budgets were shot down twice can’t increase the property-tax levy, based on the state’s property-tax cap law.
