MOUNT PLEASANT, N.Y. -- Voters in Mount Pleasant approved the school district's proposed $55.7 million budget for the 2014-15 school year on Tuesday.

The school budget was passed 550-372.

In the school board election, Laurie Donato was elected with 652 votes, Edward Barnes with 453 and Eric Schulze with 527.

The new budget was up from the 2013-14 budget of $52.5 million -- an increase of 3.45 percent -- but  came in below the state mandated cap of a 2 percent increase in the tax levy.

Property owners can expect to pay approximately $359 more in taxes next year.
