  • With school districts having to propose tight budgets, some with staffing cuts once again due to moderate state aid funding and a state-imposed tax cap that places additional burdens on the budgeting process, all three districts within the Express coverage area saw its budgets pass with ease May 15.

  • With school districts having to propose tight budgets, some with staffing cuts once again due to moderate state aid funding and a state-imposed tax cap that places additional burdens on the budgeting process, all three districts within the Express coverage area saw its budgets pass with ease May 15.
    Dansville’s $28.4 million budget passed 363 to 131; Keshequa’s $18.5 million budget passed 201 to 71; and Way-Co’s $28.4 million budget passed 432 to 148.
    Wayland-Cohocton was the only budget of the three that required a 60 percent supermajority approval to pass. It passed with 74 percent approval.
    Each district had other propositions on the ballot, all of which also passed.
    Board of Education seats were also up for election in each district. For Dansville, three candidates vied for three open seats. Incumbents David Mapes and Mary Ann Holden returned to their positions, while former Express staff writer Dan Bishop will take over outgoing Peter Bacon’s seat.
    Three vied for two open seats in both the Wayland-Cohocton and Keshequa school districts.
    Voters in Way-Co elected newcomer Rich Rizzieri and incumbent Dirk Traphagen over newcomer Daniel Feno; while voters in Keshequa approved incumbent Mark Ewing and newcomer Melanie Bishop over newcomer David Waddle for two seats.
