New Hyde Park-Garden City Park

VOTING

6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday at Michael J. Tully Park.

THE BUDGET

The district proposes a budget of $38,215,400 for 2017-18, a 1.83 percent increase from the current $37,527,240. The tax levy would increase 2.08 percent, from $29,361,594 to $29,973,390.

This increase equals the district’s tax-cap limit, so a simple majority will be required to approve the budget.

School taxes on the average single-family home would rise an estimated 2.08 percent, from $3,245.43 to $3,313.05. District officials noted that the figures for 2017-18 are unofficial because the Nassau County assessor’s office has not finalized the assessed values and adjusted base proportions.

The budget also includes technology expenditures, such as replacing some printers, computers and whiteboard/projectors, as well as buying mobile devices for fifth-grade classrooms.

A proposition asks voters to approve the use of $2,958,732 in capital reserves, at no additional cost to taxpayers, for work that includes sidewalk replacement at Manor Oaks School and a new roof for Garden City Park School.

Another proposition asks voters to approve the Sewanhaka Central High School District’s 2017-18 budget of $193,070,535.

THE CANDIDATES

Incumbents Tara Notine and James Reddan are running unopposed for two by-seat positions. Terms are three years.
