ADDISON — The Addison Central School board has for the third straight year adopted a proposed budget that if approved on Town Meeting Day will lower spending and, according to Addison Northwest Supervisory Union estimates, could also mean a lower education property tax rate.
In March, Addison residents will weigh in on a proposal for about $1.68 million of spending in the coming school year. It would cut about $28,400, or 1.66 percent, from the current budget.
