Voters approve 2018-2019 budget

Voters in the Pine Bush Central School District have approved the district’s $116,178,996 budget for the 2018-2019 school year.

Four candidates were seeking the two open seats on the board of education. Kristin Graessle and Ross Tompkins were top vote getters.

In addition, two propositions were approved by voters. One authorizes the district to create a capital reserve fund. The other approves an energy-saving program, primarily installing solar panels throughout the district. The school board already approved the program; getting voter approval allows the district to get additional state aid for the project.
