Niagara Gazette — Board member James Cancemi said he struggled with adopting the budget because of the timing coming off making such promises. But he approved it because the district is in need of the extra $750,000 a 3 percent increase will generate.
"We told the community over and over again there wouldn't be a tax increase because of the capital project if it was passed," he said. "Now, we're sitting here talking about this tax increase. But the state has put a strain on every school district. My heart tells me to vote no based on the timing. But it's with a clear conscience that I vote yes."Big red number 3.77 Amount tax levy can be raised before needing a 60 percent majority approval to bypass the law
