Hauppauge residents will vote on the school district’s $104.44 million proposed budget for the 2014-15 school year on Tuesday.
The proposal calls for a 2.56 percent increase in spending over the current year and carries a 2.14 percent tax levy increase, which is within the state's tax cap. If approved, school taxes for the average homeowner would rise by about $125.
Four candidates–incumbents Susan B. Hodosky and Geri Richter and challengers Lawrence Crafa and James Kiley–are running for two seats on the Hauppauge Board of Education.
Polls are open Tuesday from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. at Whiporwil School. Find more information on the proposed budget on the district's website here. How do you plan to vote on the proposed school budget and school board election? Let us know in the comments section below.
