{{featured_button_text}}

Taxpayers in the Jordan-Elbridge Central School District will not experience the increased school taxes that were set for the 2019-20 school year. 

The district's board of education passed a resolution Wednesday night to use additional fund balance to cover a planned tax levy increase, the district said in a news release. That planned 1.65% bump was included in the district's 2019-20 budget, which voters approved in May.

The news release said that "as the fiscal year drew to a close in June, the combination of less expenditures and greater than anticipated revenues led district leaders to recommend allocating additional fund balance to eliminate the 2019-20 tax levy increase."

The news release said this is the third instance in four years the district has presented a 0% levy increase to community members.

“We’re committed to operating in a fiscally responsible manner while still providing great services and programs to our students and staff,” district Superintendent Jim Froio said in the news release.
