Manhasset Residents Vote on School Budget on Tuesday
Manhasset residents will go to the polls on Tuesday, May 21, to vote on the 2002-2003 Manhasset Public Schools budget and to vote for one trustee. Incumbent Thomas Maimone is running unopposed for that seat. The vote will be held from 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. at the Manhasset High School Gymnasium. At its April 18 meeting, Manhasset's five-member board of education unanimously adopted the proposed budget for the coming school year. The budget totals $58,009,149, an increase of $3,698,729 or 6.81 percent over the current school year. In a period when residents are expecting an increase to their taxes due to reassessment and an increase in Nassau County taxes, this seems like a fairly high increase but it must be taken in context. Although the tragedy of September 11 has been blamed for such an increase, it is not immediately apparent what the relationship is. According to Janet McCauley, Manhasset's assistant superintendent for business, New York State aid to school districts cut almost $500,000 to Manhasset for the upcoming school year. Insurance companies have also passed along the rise in health insurance costs. Investment opportunities have declined and, as a result, retirement benefits have declined. At the same time, energy costs have risen.
