After taking into account
the district’s 59.5% state building aid, the direct cost to the taxpayers would
be approximately $7 million. At this time the district will benefit from New
York State providing additional aid on a number of projects that deal with
safety and security.
The figures in the chart below are approximate annual
costs based on average home values. As you can see, the first tax impact is not until 2015-16
and the amount is expected to decrease in 2016-17 and beyond.
