Lew-Port, Niagara-Wheatfield put up second school budgets for vote Tuesday


Niagara Gazette —

Also eliminated are 38 positions within the district, including an administrator, 11 teachers and 19 teacher aides.

Like Niagara-Wheatfield, Superintendent R. Christopher Roser said if this second budget fails to receive enough support, there could be devastating cuts to kindergarten – reduced to half-day – and interscholastic sports – including cuts to varsity and junior varsity programs – as the district attempts to close its contingency budget.

He said he’d need to find an additional $900,000 in a budget which is already being reduced to combat a loss of state aid income.

Voters will have the final say from noon to 8 p.m. in the district’s Community Resource Center, 4061 Creek Road.



BUDGET VOTES Lewiston-Porter • BUDGET AMOUNT: $39.6M • TAX LEVY INCREASE: 3.95 percent • VOTING: Noon to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Community Resource Center, 4061 Creek Road Niagara-Wheatfield • BUDGET AMOUNT: $62.4M • TAX LEVY INCREASE: 4.5 percent • VOTING: Noon and 8 p.m. Tuesday, Adult Learning Center at high school, 2292 Saunders Settlement Road

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

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.
