Keene budget passes with ease

By CHRIS MORRIS ( , Lake Placid News

Voters in the Keene Central School District handily passed the 2012-13 budget on Tuesday night.

The final tally was 110 for and 29 against.

Incumbent school board member Kathy Regan, who ran unopposed for a second three-year term, was re-elected with 122 votes. School officials said there were a few write-in votes as well as a few blanks.

Keene's budget will increase the tax levy by 1.68 percent from the current school year and met the state's new property tax cap.

Total spending will be $5.34 million, up from $5.23 million this year. Of that, the total amount to be raised by taxes is slightly less than $4.46 million; last year's tax levy was about $4.4 million.

No jobs will be cut in the budget.
