Following a lengthy discussion about whether to reduce the tentative 2020-21 budget due to the coronavirus situation, the Livingston Board of Education voted on Wednesday, March 18, to approve it in order to send to the County for review.

The tax impact of this proposed budget was presented to the public on March 9 and incorporates the allowable increase of two percent. The increase in school tax on the average Livingston home of $700,000 would be $199, based on a tax levy of $110,919,955, out of a total of $128,944,023.

The budget approved Wednesday night is not final, the superintendent and board secretary emphasized. It can continue to be changed until the Public Hearing on April 27.
