East Moriches school district

VOTING

1 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday at East Moriches Elementary School.

THE BUDGET

The district proposes a $28,001,605 budget for 2018-19, a 2.24 percent increase from the current $27,387,799. The tax levy would rise 2.56 percent, from $19,954,994 to $20,466,494.

This increase is equal to the district’s tax-cap limit of 2.56 percent, so a simple majority will be required to approve the budget.

School taxes on an average single-family home would increase by 2.25 percent, from $10,580 to $10,818.

The proposed budget calls for teachers to get a 4 percent step increase. The district is in contract negotiations.

Voters will consider a proposition that is put forward to the community each year, to designate three high schools where high school students will be sent.
