Voters Approve 2020-2021 Budget

On Tuesday, June 16, Hudson Falls residents approved the district’s $44.7 million budget for 2020-21 by a vote of 1460 to 289. The results show 83.5 percent of voters supported the budget.

The approved budget has a tax levy increase of 1.9 percent, and a decrease in spending of 0.08 percent from the current year.

By a vote of 1312 to 440, voters also passed a $370,000 bus proposition to purchase two 66-passenger school buses and reelected Tim Keenan and Amanda Landsman to continue their service on the Board of Education, both with five-year terms.

“Thank you to our community for supporting next year’s budget,” said Superintendent Linda Goewey. “The district budgeted conservatively to account for the expected reduction in state aid while working to preserve all our programs and extracurriculars.”
