Budget Passes, Tax Hike At MCS

Written By Editor on 6/22/13 | 6/22/13

Middleburgh voters approved the 2013-2014 budget on the second go around. The budget was approved by a 592-414 (59-41%) margin. The new budget raised taxes by 2.68 percent, significantly lower than the initial proposal. This was still above the zero percent threshold proposed by MCS School Board member Mike Fisher. Total spending increases by .2% to $20,189,799-- a $39,308% increase. Still, with a declining tax base after Irene, the tax rate per property increased at a higher rate than the budget's expansion.
