PEEKSKILL, N.Y. – Residents of the Peekskill City School District will have the opportunity Tuesday to vote for or against the proposed 2015-16 school operating budget.

The recommended general budget for the upcoming academic year is approximately $81.9 million, while the proposed kindergarten through fifth-grade transportation budget is nearly $1.8 million, according to a budget fact sheet published by the Peekskill City School District.

The proposed budget requires a 2.62 percent tax levy increase, just shy of the 2.67 percent tax cap.

The benefits of the proposed budget for students will include smaller class sizes, more support for literacy and reading, more programs for gifted students, and an additional elementary school librarian, according to the fact sheet.

Three people are running for two trustee seats on the Board of Education.

The candidates are Ramon Fernandez and incumbent board members Lisa Aspinall-Kellawon and Colin Smith.

Polls will be open from 7 a.m.-9 p.m. at Peekskill High School, 1072 Elm St.
