CUOMO BUDGET FALLS SHORT, HAMBURG SCHOOL BOARD TOLD

Hamburg Schools Superintendent Donald A. Ogilvie Tuesday night told the School Board that the state aid the district would receive under Gov. Cuomo's proposed budget falls far short of what the district needs to maintain current levels of education.

He noted that the governor's proposal budget would provide Hamburg with an additional $66,368, an increase of only 0.5 percent.

Ogilvie, in outlining the upcoming budget process for 1990-91, said the district plans to have a budget adopted by May 1. A public hearing on that budget is scheduled for May 17, he said, and the budget vote is set for May 30.

The superintendent also gave an overview of student enrollment trends in the district.

He said the current enrollment in the district is 4,060, with a projected decrease of only about two students for 1990-91.

Ogilvie said residential development in the district will likely result in slight increases over several years after that.
