Vote today in school board and budget election

This is because the state-mandated 2 percent tax cap prevents school budgets from rising at exorbitant rates from one year to the next.

Voters in the Mamaroneck and Rye Neck school districts will be deciding budgets for the 2018-19 school year Tuesday.

All but one board member represents a district, and all are elected countywide.

Incumbent Heather Carriero has opted not to seek another term.

One write-in candidate has made known her campaign for that seat.

Tepper expected to sign deal to buy Panthers
Tepper attended Peabody High School and is a graduate Carnegie Mellon University, where the business school is named after him. There has been a lot o talk about the Panthers getting a new stadium, and if he would move the team if he didn't get one.

Poll watchers will be available to assist anyone who needs instructions on how to cast a write-in ballot.

At the May 1 school board work session and meeting trustees voted to spend more than $400,000 of their unencumbered funds to replace old copy machines, high school shop equipment, school furnishings and teacher devices.

More than half of homeowners in Nassau County and almost one-third in Suffolk pay $10,000 or more in property taxes, compared with a national rate of 4.4 percent, according to Attom Data Solutions, a California-based real-estate information company. Previously she served as vice president of the South Manor Board of Education and spent time as a member of the Eastport South Manor Centralized High School Board of Education. The cuts are phased in over three years.

School board members are concerned that the expansion of ERES Academy by hundreds of students would negatively impact two nearby district-run public schools - International Community School and Think College Now, which are housed in the Cesar Chavez Education Center three blocks from the Derby Avenue site. Transportation costs and M&O (Maintenance and Operations) expenditures (water, gas, electricity, and building upkeep) have increased $150.00 per FTE (Full Time Equivalent student) in the past five years.

In New Rochelle, the budget will need at least 60 percent of voters to approve the spending plan in order to pass.

1988 road rage case: Navjot Singh Sidhu acquitted
Reversing the High Court ruling, the apex court acquitted him of the serious charge of culpable homicide in the 1988 case. It had told the Supreme Court that the Punjab and Haryana High Court was correct in convicting its incumbent minister.

Tuckahoe School Board member Sean Hattrick, who now serves on the board as chairman, is also running unopposed for a second three-year term on the board.

The total proposed 2018-19 budget is $22,128,564, which is an increase of $547,529 over the current spending plan, or 2.54 percent.

Monday's meeting will be at 7 p.m.in the district administration building.

There are also three candidates seeking election to two board seats. Any increase to the tax rate will be offset significantly by lowered maintenance costs, the district said in its budget newsletter.

Voting will be held in East Quogue Elementary.
