Troy City School District residents have approved a $126,903,272 budget for the 2022-2023 school year. Three candidates were elected to the Board of Education.
The unofficial results of the budget vote are 575 yes and 99 no. This budget will result in a 0-percent tax levy increase – a figure that is $446,181 below the allowable tax cap of 1.18%. This also marks the second year in a row with a 0-percent tax levy increase, and the tenth consecutive year the District has presented a budget under the tax cap.
Three candidates were reelected to the Board of Education for three-year terms effective July 1, 2022:
Ann Apicella (491), Ebony Pompey-Conway (491), and Anne Wager-Rounds (526)
“I extend my thanks to the Troy voters for supporting our 2022-2023 budget,” said Superintendent John Carmello. “We are excited about the future of the district, and we look forward to building on our successes and meeting the needs of all of our students. This budget allows us to do that.”
“On behalf of the Board of Education, I would like to sincerely thank the community for their support of our district,” said Board of Education President Anne Wager-Rounds. “I congratulate Ebony Pompey-Conway and Ann Apicella on their reelection, and I look forward to continuing to work together to ensure all of our students reach their full potential.”
The Board of Education will meet on Wednesday, May 18 at 6:00 p.m. at Troy Middle School.
