Members of the Rensselaer City School District Community,
Our annual budget vote and election of members of the Board of Education is coming up on Tuesday, May 16th! The newsletter went in the mail this week and should be arriving at your homes in the next few days. We have updated our robust budget website to help answer any questions that you might have.
The quick summary is that the district has emerged from the fiscal crisis. We are asking for a more normal 3.06% increase in taxes and do not foresee those large tax increases again any time soon. It is certainly refreshing to share good fiscal news. We also have two board seats up with two candidates running.
Please keep an eye out for the newsletter to arrive in your mailbox and share this info with any friends or neighbors if you can. As always, feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions that our website hasn’t already answered. We always want informed voters!
