Voters will soon be asked to approve the $150 million school budget passed by the Farmingdale school board three weeks ago.
While the tax levy--the amount of funding a school district needs to raise through property taxes to balance its budget--will increase 2 percent, the budget itself increases just 1.82 percent, or $2,688,676. That means it fits under the state tax cap.
