Large Voter Turnout Passes North Shore Budget
North Shore School District voters went to the polls in large numbers on Tuesday, June 12 and passed their proposed 2001-2002 $52,770,707 school budget by a 286 vote margin. The budget re-vote, made necessary when the identical budget was voted down the first time on May 15, recorded 1,798 votes in favor; 1,512 votes against the spending plan. These numbers include absentee ballots. Residents in the boundaries of the North Shore School district can expect their taxes to rise by 12.9 percent, a number which is subject to change depending on the amount of state aid the district receives once legislators in Albany have the state's budget in place.
