For reasons that remain unclear, and in violation of the New York State Open Meeting Law, the school district failed to add a PDF version to the district web site even after distributing hard copies of the 2013-14 Superintendent's Proposed Budget at last Thursday's budget review meeting.
As has become a tradition, Talk of the Sound has scanned the hard copy and is making the document available online before the school district
