YORKTOWN, N.Y. - A $92.2 million budget for the 2012-13 school year will be presented to voters in the Yorktown School District Tuesday.

The budget, which increases spending by more than $1 million from this year's total, includes a districtwide property tax hike of 2.3 percent.

Voters can head to the polls from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. at Mohansic Elementary School on Locksley Road.

Meanwhile, the races for two available seats on the board of education are uncontested with President Jackie Carbone and trustee Christine Montero guaranteed three-year terms for the unpaid, volunteer positions.

Yorktown was faced with nearly $18 million in unfunded federal and state mandates and still delivered a budget $908,000 below its allowable state tax levy cap. Superintendent of Schools Ralph Napolitano told residents in a district newsletter the majority of the budget is invested in students in the classroom.
