Schalmont's budget passes

Schalmont Central School District residents voted by a margin of 626 to 480 to pass the proposal of $40,093,742 for the 2007-08 school budget.

The district will not be able to provide tax rates for district residents until August.

The following candidates were elected to the school board:

- Sandra Beloncik, incumbent

By a margin of 634 to 461, voters approved the school bus proposition to purchase three large buses and three small buses in the amount of $418,700"
