The East Ramapo School Board is working to close in on a $2.3-million shortfall in next year’s budget. School officials presented a $212.8-million spending plan for 2013-14 yesterday. That’s up $20-million over the budget passed last year. The plan includes a tax levy increase of about 3.1-percent. The board says the increase comes under the state-mandated cap. This will be the third year East Ramapo has operated on a deficit. Last year, the district had to borrow $7.5-million to balance this year’s budget.
