Voters To Vote Again On General Brown Budget


The General Brown Central School District is ready to send its budget back to the voter.

Last month the district fell 28 votes short of the 60 percent supermajority it needed to get its spending plan approved. 

For Tuesday's vote, the budget has undergone more trimming, meaning a supermajority will no longer be needed.

Since the last vote, the district has won some teacher contract concessions and has factored more state aid into the budget.

"If in fact the budget is not successful, then that would mean an additional $343,000 in cuts...We've already cut cut 20 percent of our workforce over the last four years," said district Superintendent Steve Vigliotti.

The vote is Tuesday from noon to 9 p.m. at the high school gym.
