Voters Heading To Polls To Vote On School District Budgets In Westchester

Voters will head to the polls on Tuesday, May 21 to vote on their school districts’ budget, proposed bonds and Board of Education races.

In Westchester, no school districts are proposing budgets that override the cap on increasing property tax levies, a cap that was made permanent by Gov. Andrew Cuomo earlier this year.

Multi-million dollar bond proposals will be voted on in four school districts - Briarcliff Manor, Irvington, Pleasantville and Somer - though there is expected to be limited tax implication.

Briarcliff Manor’s nearly $3 million proposal would include a roof replacement at the middle school, a track resurfacing, and infrastructure improvements districtwide. Irvington would see renovation projects, conservation initiatives, expansions and modernization efforts.

Pleasantville will make repairs to school buildings, increase security, and asbestos abatement in school floors. Somers seeks to increase security, and if approved, would include a partial roof replacement at Primrose Elementary School.
