Tupper Lake CSD Eyes Layoffs To Stay In Line With Tax Cap

The Tupper Lake Central School District is set to lose 17 to 20 jobs in the coming school year. The Adirondack Daily Enterprise reports, as district officials have put together their budget, which is up for a public vote on May 21, they saw that the district would need to cut $1.7 million in expenses to bring the budget below the state-imposed tax cap. Around $1 million of this deficit is the result of coronavirus pandemic aid from the state and federal government ending.
