Ken-Ton, Erie County's second-largest suburban district, is losing $2 million over the next few years -- $700,000 of it in the coming budget -- because of a tax settlement with the Huntley Steam Station. Praxair, another major taxpayer, is also seeking a big tax cut.

The district is also waiting to see the impact of a charter school set to open in September in Kenmore.
