Oil City school board to vote next week on tentative budget

Education Superintendent Christina Kishimoto shaka with HSTA president Corey Rosenlee outside the senate after the senate passed a key vote today to ask voters to decide this fall whether the statehould be empowered to impose a surcharge on residential

Schools that are proposing budgets that exceed the tax cap are required by law to have the approval of 60% of their district voters.

Several parents from the Greene Central School District have expressed concern after six positions from the schools were cut. In our stories previewing today's elections, many candidates said they attended their hometown schools and enrolled their children there, too. They marched on State Street on an nearly three-mile route to the school district office.

This is because the state-mandated 2 percent tax cap prevents school budgets from rising at exorbitant rates from one year to the next.

For some districts this year, the toughest question was not whether to remain within their caps - that was a given - but whether to remain well below those maximum tax limits as a signal to local residents that they understood the strain imposed by property taxes.

In Montauk, incumbent School Board member Lee White, the father of two Montauk School students, who works in property management, does appraisals and also works at the Harvest restaurant, is running unopposed for a second five-year term on the board. It would increase local tax revenue for the budget by $209,769, to a new total of $10.488 million. State aid pays for most costs not covered by local property taxes.

They'll hold a public hearing on the budget at 7 p.m. on Monday, June 11, and will vote on the budget Monday, June 25.

Next year's proposed budget is reduced by $129,059.

Israel strikes 'dozens' of Iranian targets in Syria
Johnson also called on Russian Federation to press the Syrian government, its ally, to work toward a broader political settlement. The IDF said four rockets were intercepted by the Israeli Iron Dome aerial defence system, while 16 fell short of their targets.

Each of the school districts have varying voting times and locations, so voters are asked to call their district or go to the district's webpage to learn when are where to vote. The tax levy, or amount to be raised by taxes, is $15,362,467, an increase of $286,166, or 1.90 percent.

The board would consist of three members of the School Board, two members of the City Council and the Mayor. The candidates are: Melinda Leising, Donna Durr Arancio and Samuel Catterson. While county and school district boundaries don't always line up, the message still is clear. "We also want employees and members of the public to have an opportunity to meet our finalists", Smith said. "It would be an addition of around $311,000 in this year's budget".

The 2017-18 county budget totaled $633.1 million, an 8 percent increase over the previous year.

In compliance with the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing, the Board will consider declaring the District's need for fully qualified educators and will consider approving previously-reviewed new science course materials that would be used next year at Martinez Junior High School. The district projects that its 2018-19 tax levy - that is, total revenues raised through property taxes - will rise 2.72 percent, rather than the maximum under the cap of almost 4.22 percent.

Residents of Watervliet will be able to cast their votes throughout the day on Tuesday at Watervliet Elementary School and the Watervliet Elks Lodge.

Voters will decide on the 2018-19 general budget as well as a proposition to purchase two 66-passenger school buses and for one seat on the board of education.
