The Scarborough Town Council on Wednesday will consider scheduling a second school budget validation vote for July 7.

Residents voted on June 9 to reject a proposed $43.8 million budget for the fiscal year starting July 1 – up 4.3 percent over the $42 million budget for this year.

The vote was 1,719 to 1,408 against the proposed budget. On a non-binding companion question, 1,761 voters said the budget was too high, 619 said it was too low and 710 said it was just right.

The proposed amount to be raised in taxes was $39.1 million, up $2.9 million – 8 percent – over 2014-15. It would have added 76 cents to Scarborough’s current tax rate of $15.10 per $1,000 property value – $152 to the annual tax bill for a $200,000 home.

On Wednesday, the council will begin working toward a new bottom line for the school budget. A public hearing and council vote are scheduled for June 24.
