Addison Budget Re-vote

     ADDISON - [WENY]     Addison voters came out for round 2, and the revised 2014-2015 school year budget for Addison CSD passed.
     The revised budget was passed with 341 to 296. The revised budget that was passed will preserve all current educational programs, and it brings a $36,000 tax levy decrease from the failed budget back in May.
     With the passage of the revised budget, the district was able to avoid a state mandated contingency budget.The contingency budget would have reduced the tax levy by more than $100,000. But, the district would have been forced by law to not purchase any new equipment, and also be forced to charge organizations for facility use.
      The Tuesday night budget ballot saw a greater turnout with 224 more votes than last month.
