Tioga School District Refuses 30 Percent Tax Hike

New Yorkers voted on school budgets yesterday. In Broome and Tioga counties, most budgets passed, but the Tioga Central School District got tripped up on taxes. Tioga Central schools superintendent Scot Taylor says his district relies too heavily on money held in reserve. “The only other resource you have as a district is your tax levy,” he says. So this year, the district tried raise its tax income by 30 percent.
