continued Under the current state aid runs, ELCS will receive $180,000 in a Small Government Assistance program and $3,429,241 in state aid, an increase of $236,357 from their previous budget run.
The district can raise $3,473,974 in the property tax levy, which is a 4 percent increase from 2012-13, the maximum allowed by the New York state tax levy cap for the school.
The next budget meeting will take place Wednesday, April 17 at 5 p.m.
"I will have forecast number three at that meeting," Osborne said. "As of right now, everything is prospective. Really, no final decisions are made until the vote in May."
