ONONDAGA COUNTY, N.Y. -- The Tully School District is in the early stages of its budget process, but is already anticipating the tough fiscal year ahead. For the past two years, the district has applied reserves but is still facing a $1.3 million shortfall.
Board members are also facing a loss of state aid in the amount of $30,000.
"The loss in state aid means lower revenue to offset those increased costs. And reduced revenue, increased costs, doesn't paint a very positive financial picture," said superintendent Craig Pritts.
Pritts said the community has been vital to keep programs afloat and have been active through community forum sessions.
