North Colonie tax rate edges downward

Superintendent of Schools Randy Ehrenberg said she is pleased that the district was able to once again keep the tax rate low for district taxpayers.

"We had estimated it for a little higher, and we knew that we wanted to get as low of a tax rate as we could because of what we're facing in the economy right now," Ehrenberg said.

Ehrenberg also talked about the two pillars of the educational experience the district tries to provide students and taxpayers of the district.

"We like to talk in North Colonie about the two pillars that we kind of stake our stance on, and that is that the district really works hard to be fiscally responsible and responsible to our taxpayers, and we also strive for great academic success for our students," she said. "It's always a lot of work to get that figured that out."

School tax bills are due right now through Wednesday, Sept. 30, Rybaltowski said, after which point there will be a penalty for paying them late.
