Pagt Four WELLSVIUE DAILY REPORTER, WELLSVIUE, NEW YORK Monday, August 25, 1969 What's Ahead tor Fillmore? 4th Budget Vote Scheduled OBITUARIES FILLMORE — Voters in the Fillmore Central School District - approximately 1,800 are eligible - will for the fourth time, Thursday, cast their opinion on the school's proposed 1969-70 ; budget. The meeting is slated i for 7:30 p.m. The original budget totaled $1,209,386. It Was rejected by a vote of 442 to 187 at the June 10 , annual meeting. ' The School Board then cut the proposed spending by $80,630 but voters again rejected a budget that was $40,000 higher than the 1968-69 budget. The July 10 -vote was 323 to 282. Taxpayers just didn't want any part of a budget that increased their rate from $31 to $45 per $1,000 assessed valuation! A Citizens Committee was formed composed mostly of dissident taxpayers which directed most of their ire against School Board President Robert Fiegl. Petitions circulated calling for his resignation were signed by more than 400 persons. It was stated that the primary objections to the high spending program contained in the budget centered around the salarv boosts won by the Teachers Association earlier in the year. Raises for the 48 members of the faculty averaged approximately $1,710 with salaries for starting teachers with a bachelor degree at $6,800. Many members of the Citizens Committee believe this salary is too high for a rural school district. The Fillmore District includes parts of eight towns: Allen, Birdsall, Caneadea, Centerville, Granger and Hume in Allegany County; Genesee Recreation Program Closes In Andover ANDOVER — A rendition of "Where is Thumbkin?" won the title of "Miss Playground for 1969" for Vicki Carlson at the closing program of the Andover summer recreation program. Her runner-up was Julie Richmmond who did a hula dance. Second and third runners-up, respectively, were Sandy Horan, who sang, and Deana Dodge, who read a poem. '•: ;Each received a summer ^playground shirt and a bracelet with Vicki also awarded a crown and banner. Other children who received trophies for the top spots in the tournaments were: Mike Dibble, table tennis; Judy Bliss and David Dodge, tennis; Steve Dunham, golf; and David Dodge, archery. Steve Dibble and Julie Richmond were named boy and girl with the best attitude at the playground. The summer recreation program was jointly sponsored by the Village and Town of Andover and the State Youth Department. John Hughes was the director, assisted by Gail Bronson. Falls and Pike in Wyoming County. However, undaunted the School Board submitted a third budget on Aug. 7 identical to the second version, citing that the District could face an austerity budget if this too was defeated. However, voters again vetoed the budget by a vote of 390 to 356. Meeting with the Citizens Committee; the board has cut $25,695 by eliminating the teacher-aid positions and outlays for equipment, supplies and conference attendance. The new budget on which voters will pass judgment Thursday night totals $1,193,146 which is $15,609 higher than the school's past year's budget. This would call for a tax rate hike of $8.56 per $1,000 assessed valuation, or an average of $40.33. Whether the Fillmore District voters will approve the new budget, which still contains the believed to be high teachers' salaries but no longer has $19,940 for two buses, plus the $25,605 cut under expenses, is a matter of conjecture. If this budget is defeated, a source close to the school board said that x it might force the board the consider the six- school merger plan proposed earlier this year, but which later the Fillmore Board withdrew its support. But, this same cource stated, it could easily be that those who vote 'no' on its school budget, would also vote 'no' on any merger plan. John W.
