In Herkimer County, taxpayers are voting on a $20 million plus budget for the Herkimer Central School District.

If the budget is passed they will be losing a social workerand a part-time music instructor.

But, Superintendent Gary Tutty says if the budget is voteddown, even more layoffs will have to be made.

Superintendent Tutty says although this year’s budget cutsaren’t that deep, it’s still affecting the school district.

“We’ve been losing little by little by little. And that isgoing to continue next year and the year after if the state continues the waythey are funding. We are going to have to keep cutting. We only have two APcourses left,” said Tutty.

Voters will have a say in a bus proposition as the schooldistrict wants to buy two new school buses.

There are also two seats open for the school board, bothcandidates are incumbents.
