Port Chester Schools to Hold Tax Cap Forum

PORT CHESTER, N.Y. – The Port Chester School District is holding a forum on the New York State tax cap on Monday, Dec. 19 at the Port Chester Middle School Auditorium.

The forum offers community members an opportunity to give input to the district as it devises, for the first time, a budget under the new 2 percent property tax cap.

According to the district's website, the cap requires at least 60 percent voter approval for a school budget if the proposed levy increase exceeds the district-specific figure generated by a formula outlined by the law.

Port Chester Superintendent Edward Kliszus stated in a letter that the district faces a budget drop of between $2 million and $4.2 million.

Superintendent Kliszuz added that "the time to try to get relief from Albany is now" and urges community members to "voice their concerns" and "request that state aid be increased for our district.”
