David Flatley, superintendent of the Carle Place Union Free School District, has announced that a new “one-shot” budget rollout discussion will take place on Saturday, Feb. 12 at 9 a.m. in the high school auditorium.

“We knew that this was going to be a difficult budget year. We decided to try to do things a little bit differently to give people an opportunity to participate more fully in the process,” said Flatley.
