C-G BOE Discusses Budget Issues

According to Canisteo-Greenwood School Superintendent Jeremy Palloti, there are the usual factors in this year’s budget, such as pensions and salaries and benefits. However, Palotti maintains that this year there’s something new: an increase in spouses of school employees, who are coming on to the school’s health insurance plan now, because they found that their health insurance that they were getting from other jobs, was negatively affected by Obamacare.

In other Canisteo-Greenwood School news, the school board is looking at possibly having a vote on whether to allow a tax exemption for military veterans. School officials will get the community’s input before voting on the possible tax exemption, as there are said to be about 400 properties that belong to veterans in the Canisteo Greenwood School District. However, officials are concerned about the shift in taxes, which could happen if there is a veterans tax exemption for Canisteo and Greenwood school taxpayers.
