White Plains School Budget Vote Tuesday

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Residents of the White Plains School District will vote Tuesday on a $188,822,000 budget and three uncontested Board of Education seats.

The three candidates for those seats are incumbent trustees Peter Bassano and James Hricay and newcomer Rose Lovitch . Donna McLaughlin will not run for re-election.

The 2012-2013 budget , adopted by the board April 16, represents a 3.03 percent tax hike with a tax rate of $565.50 per $1,000 of assessed valuation. That translates into $249.15 more per year for an average assessed home of $15,000.

The budget-to-budget increase from 2011-2012 is $3,285,534, or 1.77 percent. The tax levy, which is the total amount of taxes the district collects from the community, is $156,756,340, an increase over 2011-2012 of $3,180,610, or 2.07 percent. The allowable tax levy under the 2 percent tax levy cap for White Plains is $156,756,340.

The public can vote from noon to 9 p.m. at their designated polling location, which will be one of the following: Ridgeway School, Highlands MS, Church Street School, Battle Hill Fire Station #5, Rochambeau School and Mamaroneck Avenue School.
