VOTING

9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday at Remsenburg-Speonk Elementary School.

THE BUDGET

The district proposes a budget of $13,227,089 for 2016-17, a 0.03 percent decrease from the current $13,231,448. The tax levy would rise by 1.89 percent, from $11,385,355 to $11,600,772.

This increase is within the district’s tax-cap limit of 2.5 percent, so a simple majority vote will be required to approve the budget.

School taxes on an average single-family home would decrease by 0.24 percent, from $6,630.68 to $6,614.63.

The proposed budget includes a 0.75 percent contract increase and 1.24 percent step increase for teachers. One teacher position would be cut, and a part-time curriculum coordinator position would be added.

A proposition asks voters to authorize contracts with the Westhampton Beach and Eastport/South Manor school districts for educating district students in grades 7-12. Another proposition asks voters to authorize a one-year contract with the Suffolk Cooperative Library System for direct access library service at a cost of $265,354.
