AUBURN, N.Y. -- The Auburn City School District has passed its budget with a super majority.
The district needed a 60 percent approval to pass the budget because it went over the statewide tax cap.
As of Tuesday night, the district had a 61 percent approval, but more than 400 affidavit ballots were uncounted because of an issue at two polling locations. The affidavit ballots were counted Wednesday morning.
The budget passed 2,665 to 1,586 and 19.5 positions will be cut and the tax levy will be raised by 3.45 percent.
