Board expected to adopt $190.5M budget

Williamsville – Following its final budget work session held March 29, the Williamsville School Board next week is expected to adopt the district’s 2018-19 district budget, which totals about $190.5 million.

During the work session, Superintendent Scott Martzloff presented to the board the preliminary spending plan, which is a budget-to-budget increase of 2.34 percent and carries an estimated tax levy increase of 2.24 percent.

The levy, or amount to be raised in taxes, is below the state’s mandated tax cap.

The superintendent said the spending plan would have an approximate tax rate increase of about 2.24 percent. The hike means that for an Amherst home assessed at $150,000, the tax increase with the STAR subsidy applied would be $43.43 for the budget year.
