LAKEGEORGE-The Lake George School Board has developed a new proposed 2011-12 budget by trimming a variety of expenses, and the spending plan is due to go to a public hearing at 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 7 in the high school auditorium.
The new proposal, crafted after the initial 2011-12 budget was defeated by voters May 17, calls for spending of $20,343,402, or $194,017 less than the amount in the board's earlier budget.
The new, trimmed budget will mean a 2.84 percent increase in the tax levy over the 2010-11 school year, rather than the 3.98 percent levy increase reflected in the April plan.
The board met Friday May 27, finalized the figures, and endorsed the new plan. The trimmed budget goes up for a public vote Tuesday, June 21.
