School District Votes Trickling In: Rome, Clinton And Utica Pass Budgets

All three propositions brought forward by the Clinton Central School District were passed on Tuesday, though some were approved by small margins.

Proposition one, regarding the district’s budget, was passed by a vote of 346 to 232.

Proposition two related to bus purchases and was also passed.

The closest vote involved the continued funding of a school resource officer. Originally, the position was partly funded by outside sources, but will now be picked up by the school district.

The two school positions were filled by John Harmon, Jr. and Edward Blake, who were unopposed.

Separate from the school district was a proposition relating to the Dunham Public Library, which passed 650 to 382. A similar plan to upgrade the library’s security and technology was approved as well, 586-420.

Sally Swierczek was also elected to the board, though she ran unopposed.
