Proposed Bridgehampton School District Budget Would Pierce Tax Levy Cap

The budget calls for a spending increase of $1,672,490, or 8.8 percent, over the current year. The tax levy would rise by $1,466,190 to $17.89 million, or 8.9 percent. The tax rate is projected to climb to just under $1.98 per $1,000 of assessed valuation from just under $1.84 per $1,000 last year. That would translate to an increase of about $143 for a house valued at $1 million.
