The Alden Central School District will present its 1995-96 budget at a special meeting at 7:30 p.m. May 4 in the high school. A public vote has been set for 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. May 31 in the high school.
Superintendent Thomas Boedicker said he expects a 3 to 4 percent increase in spending for 1995-96. That compares with last year's proposal that called for an 11 percent increase and was defeated by voters. Estimated tax rates for the new budget should be available by mid-April.
During the next several months, the board will hear from its citizens committee, which has been studying renovation options for the district.
Boedicker said the committee will focus on renovations, expansion, space constraints and technology.
Voters defeted a $6 million renovation proposal last November and the citizens committee is using that plan as a basis for future recommendations, Boedicker said.
The committee comprises about 35 parents, staff and concerned citizens.
