Proposed Falls School District budget doesn't specify tax increase, expected to be at least 3 percent

(Continued)

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."

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
