Nanuet School And Library Budgets Pass, Library Trustee Defeated

According to unofficial results, voters approved the Nanuet School District budget for 2013-2014 by a vote of 511 to 219.  They also passed the Nanuet Public Library budget with 461 votes in favor and 267 against on Tuesday.  

Brian Booth won election to the library board. He defeated incumbent Paul Corriel. Booth received 335 votes to Corriel’s 244 votes.  

School board incumbents Ron Hansen and Karen Franchino won re-election with 511 and 483 votes respectively. Challenger Scott Walters trailed with 235 votes.  

Voter turnout increased over 2012.  Last year about 700 people voted and this year about 40 more cast ballots.  

The school budget approved by voters totals $64,599,768, an increase of 3.33 percent from last year. It carries a 1.09 percent tax levy increase.  

The budget eliminates: 8.8 teaching positions, 4.8 teaching assistant positions, 2.2 custodial positions, 1.2 clerical and two monitor positions.  It also cuts all freshmen and most assistant varsity coaching positions.  

The library’s $2,772,850 budget for next year includes an increase of $318,850 over the current budget. The approved budget extends the tax cap by about $225,000 or more than 10 percent.   

Franchino was re-elected to a ninth term on the school board and Hansen, currently the board vice president, will serve his fourth full three-year term. Corriel, who is the Library Board of Trustees’ vice president, lost his bid for a fourth, five-year term.
