AUBURN -- The Auburn Enlarged City School District's 2012-2013 budget totals $65.6 million, and it raises property taxes 3.45 percent. But since it is above Auburn's state-mandate tax cap of 1.89 percent, Auburn voters will have to strongly support the budget for it to pass -- 60 percent having to vote yes.
Superintendent J.D. Pabis called this latest budget process the most difficult he's ever been involved with, but stresses the board and administrators worked hard to get feedback from those affected most. At a recent Auburn school board meeting, nearly 200 people turned out, according to Pabis.
