PLATTSBURGH — There is no need for registered voters to re-register in order to participate in the Plattsburgh City School District’s budget re-vote.
All registered voters who are residents of the City of Plattsburgh are eligible to vote on the school’s 2012-13 spending plan on Tuesday, June 19.
Unregistered voters, however, must register with the Clinton County Board of Elections no later than today in order to cast their ballot.
The district’s initial spending plan of $38.3 million, which carried a tax-levy increase of 5.82 percent, was defeated last month, and the School Board has put forth a second budget.
The revised proposal of $37.8 million eliminates more than $1.5 million in expenditures and relies on a 2.84 percent tax-levy increase.
Polling will take place between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. at Bailey Avenue Elementary School, Momot Elementary School and the Duken Administration Building on Broad Street.
If the district’s second budget fails, the School Board will be forced to adopt a contingency budget, which allows for a zero-percent increase in the tax levy and mandates $600,000 in additional cuts.
