Hilton CSD Board of Education adopts $82.4 million budget proposal for 2018-19 public vote May 15

By on April 16, 2018

At its regular meeting on April 10, the Hilton Central School District Board of Education adopted more than an $80,000,000 budget proposal for the 2018-19 school year. This is a 1.86 percent increase over last year’s budget, which, if approved by voters, will result in an estimated 0.65 percent tax rate increase in Greece, Hamlin and Parma, and a 3.89 percent increase in Clarkson due to the town’s partial property valuation.

“Every year’s budget development cycle poses different challenges for the district. I appreciate all of the stakeholder’s efforts during the process,” said Casey Kosiorek, superintendent of schools. “Our proposed spending plan is a result of assessment and reallocation of resources to meet our students’ needs. This budget is responsible to taxpayers and maintains quality staffing and programming that align with our strategic plan.”

The adopted budget qualifies Hilton School District residents for a property tax relief credit, or star rebate, because the district is in compliance with the state imposed Property Tax Levy Cap.

Details of the budget will be available on the Hilton District website at Hilton.k12.ny.us/Budget. A budget newsletter will be mailed to residents in May and a list of budget presentations will be posted on the website.

On Tuesday, May 15, district residents can vote on the budget proposition, as well as a $1,102,500 bus purchase proposition and two open positions on the Board of Education. Voters will select two board members to serve three-year terms. The terms of Thomas Abbott and Russell Byer will expire June 30.

Polls located at Hilton High School (Parma, Clarkson and Hamlin residents) and Northwood Elementary School (Greece residents) will be open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Voters must be registered with the Monroe County Board of Elections or with District Clerk Julie Norris (392-1000, ext. 7099) to vote on May 15. Handicapped accessible parking is available.
