Mamaroneck School District’s $125.3 million budget for 2011-12 is now official after winning voter approval on Tuesday.
According to results released Tuesday night, 1,771 individuals voted in favor of the budget and 663 voted against it.
The budget, which rings in at $125,325,971, represents a 2.59% increase over last year.
The .84% property tax increase to fund that increase will cost the average homeowner in the district about $126 more per year. It is the lowest tax rate increase in more than 40 years, according to the district.
On the school board, Stanley Futterman and Ann LoBue were elected to three-year terms in an uncontested race, to fill two seats being vacated.
Futterman is a Larchmont father of three boys who attended the Mamaroneck public schools. He is principal of the Law Offices of Stanley N. Futterman and has served as a board member of the Friends of the Larchmont Public Library.
LoBue is co-president of the Murray Avenue School PTA, where her daughter attends fourth grade. A resident of the town of Mamaroneck, she works as a writer and communications consultant, and previously managed corporate marketing communications for financial institutions including Goldman Sachs.
