Katonah-Lewisboro school budget shot down

The $111 million Katonah-Lewisboro school budget was voted down by fewer than 200 votes this week.

"I recognize it didn't pass because they're a lot of people that feel very strongly on both sides," says Martha McDermott, of Katonah. "Both parents that are concerned that things are being cut that shouldn't be cut, as well people who were concerned about the taxes going up."

School officials can submit one more budget to the voters before deciding to go to an austerity plan.
