Mike Darby's Patch & Paint Machpelah Cemetery Annual Plot Owners' Meeting at Oatka Hose Co. 11 North Avenue 10:00 am Saturday, March 31, 2018 3/25 Le Roy Central School District Bus Purchase Public Vote March 20, 2018 · 2 p.m. - 7 p.m in the Wolcott Street School Library/Media Center Trigon Park Building PROPOSITION 1 Le Roy Central School residents are being asked to authorize the district to bor- row money for the purchase of new school busses in an amount not to exceed $313,000. This dollar amount would purchase two (2) full size 65 passenger school busses equipped with a two-way radio and a video surveillance system, one (1) 28-passenger mini bus with interior surveillance equipment and two- way radio package and one (2) 8-passenger van with two-way radio package. These purchases will replace existing vehicles. Le Roy Central School District has implemented a 10-year replacement cycle for all school busses. This replacement cycle is based on a history of mileage and usage. The District has found that maintenance costs, body repairs, rust damage and safety issues increase significantly once a bus reaches approxi- mately 10 years of age, particularly as school busses must pass New York State D.O.T. inspections twice a year. Additionally, the strain of typical driving pat- terns create a faster wear on busses as an average school bus makes an approx- imately 100 stops and starts during a single day. All public schools in New York State receive a reimbursement from New York State for such school bus purchases over a 5 year period. Le Roy Cen- tral School District’s reimbursement ratio is currently 90%, thus the taxpayers would be responsible for the remaining 10%. The District’s plan is to borrow these funds to align the debt repayment with the reimbursement period. What Does This Mean for Taxpayers? Cost of 4 Busses: $313,000 NYS Reimbursement at 90%: ($281,700) Local Cost of 4 Busses: $31.300 The total Le Roy taxpayer cost would be $31,300 for this proposition, which when divided over a five year payback period is approximately $6,260 per year from the General Fund Budget. When this amount is then divided into the as- sessment value total for the entire District, each taxpayer will pay approximate- ly less than two cents per thousand dollars assessed value each year. In other words, if your home is assessed for $100,000 you would pay less than $2.00 a year for this proposition. If we factor in the salvage value of the old busses, this amount is even less each year. 49 Main Street Le Roy, New York 14482 585-768-1000 SUNDAY BRUNCH Palm Sunday – March 25th & Easter Sunday, April 1st 10 AM to 2 PM $ 14.99 Adults - $ 8.99 Children (10 and under) Chicken French Ziti Pasta Salt Potatoes Italian Sausage with peppers & onions Salad Vegetable Medley Sausage Bacon Breakfast Biscuits Muffins Baked Stuffed French Toast Fresh fruits & Assorted Desserts DRINKS: $ 2.00 (Coffee-Tea-Orange Juice-Soft Drinks) MIMOSA DRINKS $ 3.99 & HOUSE WINES ONLY $ 5.00
