Dolgeville Central School District voters on Tuesday, May 17, approved the 2022-23 school budget, with 173 casting votes in favor of the $19.4 million spending plan and 54 opposed.
In the Board of Education election, Tiffany Rutkowski, of Stratford, was elected to a five-year term, supported by 190 votes.
Voters also approved the bus purchase proposition by a vote of 175 to 52.
The results, announced shortly after polls closed, showed that 76% of 227 voters supported the budget.
The budget calls for a tax levy increase of 0.007 percent, which is at the district’s limit based on the state tax-cap formula. The budget maintains all current student programs and support and invests in core programs such as social-emotional learning (SEL) and the universal pre-kindergarten program.
“I would like to thank everyone who took the time to vote today,” Superintendent Joseph Gilfus said. “We appreciate and value the community’s commitment to educating our children and students in Dolgeville, and continue looking forward to working collaboratively with our entire school community for the benefit of our greatest resource, our kids.”
