If the proposed budget is defeated at the polls, the board of education would have three legal options. They could decide to put the same budget before the voters a second time, put a revised budget before the voters, or go directly to a contingency budget. New contingency budget rules mean that the BH-BL board of education would have to cut $297,955 from the proposed budget. In this case, taxes on a median value home (assessed at $171,100) would increase by 4.9 percent or $150.
Voting will take place at the Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake High School Tuesday, May 15, from 7a.m. to 9 p.m."
