Hilton Board of Ed adopts $72.3 M budget proposal for 2013-14

By on April 28, 2013

At its regular meeting April 9, the Hilton Central School District Board of Education adopted a $72.3 million budget proposal for the 2013-14 school year, a 3.51 percent increase over last year’s budget resulting in an estimated 1.97 percent tax rate increase in all district towns.

“This budget cycle challenged our 12 District Budget Committees, Administrative Cabinet and Board of Education. The 2013-14 proposed budget is positioned to help all students meet more rigorous requirements, manage unfunded mandates that plague schools across the state and at the same time limit the financial impact on the local community,” said Superintendent David Dimbleby. Details of the budget will be available on the Hilton District website at www.hilton.k12.ny.us/budget-profile.htm.

District residents will vote on the budget proposition as well as a $963,000 bus purchase proposition and three open positions on the Board of Education Tuesday, May 21. The three-year terms of Michelle Ames, Barb Cutrona and Steve Beauvais are expiring. Meet the Candidates Night is Thursday, May 9 at 7 p.m. in the Board of Education room at District Office, 225 West Avenue, Hilton.

Polls located at Hilton High School (Parma, Clarkson and Hamlin residents) and Northwood Elementary (Greece residents) will be open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Voters must be a registered voter with Monroe County Board of Elections to vote on May 21 or registered with District Clerk Pat Unterborn (585-392-1000, ext. 7099). Handicapped accessible parking is available.
