School districts hope voters say 'yes' to leaner budgets

Some school districts in Westchester are hoping voters say ?yes? to leaner budgets Tuesday after many spending plans were defeated last month.

Greenburgh Central 7 voters rejected a $54.8 million plan with an 8.8 percent tax rate increase. The new budget proposal is $53.9 million, with a 6.9 percent tax increase. In Mamaroneck, voters said no to a $112 million budget with a 6.5 percent tax increase. They will now vote on a $110.41 million budget with a 4.8 percent tax increase. Pleasantville trimmed down its school budget to $38.7 million from $38.9 million, giving voters a 3.2 percent tax increase.

Polls are open until 9 p.m.
