East Ramapo: Budget concerns raised ahead of new vote
A re-vote is scheduled for June 20.
Concerns are being raised that voters will reject East Ramapo’s revised budget during a special election next week, a defeat that would force $2 million worth of cuts to a public school district trying to mend itself.
During a public hearing on Tuesday, residents weighed in on the $231.6 million proposal, with a few saying they’re doubtful it’ll pass.
The proposed budget carries a 1.48 percent tax increase, which, officials said, translates into $120 annually for the average household.
