MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. – After Mount Vernon voters vehemently rejected the proposed school district budget, officials continue making adjustments with the hope it will pass on a critical second shot on the ballot.
The Board of Education and district administrators are currently reworking the budget for Board approval on Wednesday. If approved, voters will have another chance to pass it on June 18.
On May 21, voters rejected the initial $225,885,332 spending plan with a lopsided vote of 1,169-773. The Board of Education will welcome community feedback and suggestions that would help during the second vote.
