Hilton CSD School Budget Vote and Board of Education Election – May 15

By on May 14, 2018

The Hilton Central School District 2018-19 School Budget Vote and Board of Education Election will be held Tuesday, May 15 from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. at Hilton High School (Parma, Clarkson and Hamlin residents) and Northwood Elementary School (Greece residents).

The $82,376,158 budget proposal for the 2018-19 school year, a 1.86 percent increase over last year’s budget, results in an estimated 0.65 percent tax rate increase in Greece, Hamlin and Parma, and an estimated 3.88 percent increase in Clarkson. Clarkson has a partial property valuation, whereas Greece, Hamlin and Parma properties are assessed at full valuation. Therefore, a home valued at $100,000 would have the same school tax bill in all four towns.

In addition to the budget proposition, district residents are being asked to vote on a $1,102,500 bus purchase proposition, and two open positions on the Board of Education. The candidates are incumbents Thomas Abbott and Russell Byer. The two candidates with the most votes will serve three-year terms of office beginning July 1.

Details of the budget are available on the Hilton District website at hilton.k12.ny.us/Budget. A budget newsletter was mailed to residents and additional copies are available in all of the schools.

Hilton High School is located at 400 East Avenue, Hilton and Northwood Elementary School is located at 433 North Greece Road, Hilton. Voters must be registered with the Monroe County Board of Elections or with the Hilton School District by May 8, 2018 in order to vote on May 15. Handicapped accessible parking is available.
