Canajoharie 2016-17 school tax levy increase eliminated
As a result of additional, unanticipated state
aid the district received in 2015-16, the Canajoharie Central School
District Board of Education has set tax levy for 2016-17 with no
increase from last year.
In May, voters approved a 2016-17 budget that
increased the local tax levy by two-tenths of 1 percent, or $15,907.
As a result of state aid for 2015-16 coming in slightly higher than
projected, the board of education at its August meeting voted to
eliminate the tax levy increase for this year. The 2016-17 school
property tax levy will be 6,982,081, which is equal to the 2015-16
“The year-end review of our revenues in July
showed that the district had received more state aid than expected
for last year. As a result of that additional, unanticipated
revenue, we are able to pass a savings on to the local taxpayer
without cutting programs for our students,” Superintendent Deborah
