Ballston Spa budget comes under tax cap

Ballston Spa school officials this year are proposing a budget that falls within the tax levy cap, a year after voters agreed to allow the district to exceed the cap.

The Ballston Spa Central School District has pitched a $79.6 million 2013-14 spending plan, 4.2 percent higher than the current year’s $76.4 million budget.

A copy of the most recent public budget is available below.

Officials haven’t said exactly how much the property tax levy increase would be, but said it does fall within the state cap, which for Ballston Spa next year is 3.22 percent based on the state’s formula, district spokesman Stuart Williams said.

A full copy on the school budget is available HERE.

The Board of Education may vote Wednesday night on the budget after Superintendent Joseph P. Dragone presents his final version. The meeting starts at 7 p.m. in the high school library.

April 17 is the last day the board could vote on the budget, which will go before voters May 21.
