EDISON – The state Commissioner of Education trimmed $934,946 from Edison’s proposed $175.7 million school tax levy which was rejected by an overwhelming majority of voters in April.
The decision, which was relayed to the school district on Monday, came after the nine-member school board unanimously re-adopted the originally-proposed budget at a meeting last week. It fell to the commissioner to determine the school tax levy after the voters rejected the original budget and the Township Council failed to reach an agreement on possible cuts.
