New Suffolk


3 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday at New Suffolk Common School.


The district is proposing a $1,110,701.32 budget for 2017-18, a 12.5 percent decrease from the current $1,269,085.76. The tax levy would increase by 6.5 percent, from $798,471 to $850,375.

This exceeds the district’s tax-cap limit of 3.4 percent, so the district needs a 60 percent majority vote to approve the budget. The additional funds are needed to meet unexpected tuition expenses, according to district officials. New Suffolk is a K-6 district, and pays tuition for students to attend schools in the Southold Union Free School District.

The district said it could not provide an estimate of what school taxes would be on the average single-family home because it did not have the necessary assessment information.

The proposed budget includes a 3.4 percent step increase for teachers. Student class size is expected to increase to accommodate three new students.


Incumbent Tony Dill is running unopposed for one by-seat position. The term is three years.
