Seward Steps In For Schenevus


State Senator James Seward helped to pass legislation through the Senate to give advanced financial aid to Schenevus School District in Otsego County. Seward put forth a bill that would help advance Schenevus District for half of a million dollars in school aid for this year, and a decreasing sum of advanced aid over the next thirty years. 
In order to get the help, the school district would have to agree to adhere to a strict financial plan to maintain their solvency. The budget that voters will have the opportunity to voice their opinion on will have a 4.87% tax increase this year.
The legislation still needs to be passed by the assembly and signed by Governor Cuomo.
