Where we live: Lancaster


Spending in the latest draft of the Lancaster Central School District budget stands at $99.94 million, which is up $2.5 million or 2.57 percent over the current budget.

School Board members are still waiting for state aid budget figures to finish the revenue side of the 2015-16 budget. The district is hopeful final state aid numbers will be released when the state budget is adopted, and the deadline for adopting it is Wednesday.

“We have a few scenarios planned out,” assistant superintendent for business and support services Jamie Phillips told board members last week.

The proposed 2015-16 budget will be presented to the board April 13, and board members are expected to approve the budget April 21.

Also, the SPCA will present an educational program about animal care for 2 to 5-year-olds at 10:30 a.m. April 8. Animal care will be addressed through stories, crafts and songs.

To register for the program, call the library at 683-1120. The library is located at 5466 Broadway.
