Where we live: Depew


Residents of the Depew School District will have their say Tuesday on a $41.22 million budget proposal that would increase spending by 1.07 percent and increase the tax levy by 2.92 percent.

Voting will be held from noon to 9 p.m. at the Cayuga Heights Elementary School, 1780 Como Park Blvd.

Also on the ballot is a transporation proposition for $269,004 to buy four buses from the district’s vehicle purchase reserve fund. The district is looking to buy one, 66-passenger bus, plus two, 29-passenger buses and one, 29-passenger bus with three wheelchair seats. There would be no impact for taxpayers.

Voters also will weigh in on a proposition regarding veterans’ tax exemptions and whether to allow veterans residents to be eligible for exemptions from school taxes.

The board race for two seats features Dave Sheff and Justin Young. The seats carry three-year terms.
