JE BOE eliminates 2019-20 tax levy increase
On July 10th, the Jordan-Elbridge Central School District Board of Education voted to use fund balance to eliminate the planned tax levy increase for 2019-20.
In May, district residents approved the district’s 2019-20 budget, which carried a 1.65 percent tax levy increase. However, as the fiscal year drew to a close in June, the combination of less expenditures and greater than anticipated revenues lead district leaders to recommend allocating additional fund balance to eliminate the 2019-20 tax levy increase.
This is the third time in four years that the Jordan-Elbridge Central School District has presented a 0 tax levy increase to district residents.
Superintendent James Froio said the district’s budget practices include focusing on maximizing revenues and managing expenses, and he’s pleased taxpayers will benefit.
“We’re committed to operating in a fiscally responsible manner while still providing great services and programs to our students and staff,” he said.
