Residents of the Auburn School District are voting on the school budget for the upcoming year. The budget includes a 1.58% tax levy increase and a $3.6 Million deficit. Voters will also be asked to vote yes or no on two resolutions to create reserve funds and to elect members of the school board.
School Board President Michael McCole said on Tuesday’s Finger Lakes Morning News there is some confusion about the reserve funds.
