Budget public hearing rescheduled to June 1

The Fayetteville-Manlius School District Board of Education’s public hearing on the proposed 2020-21 budget was planned to take place during the board’s May 26 meeting and conducted via livestream  on the district’s YouTube channel. However, a power failure at that time prohibited the livestream. 

The board rescheduled the hearing to 6 p.m. June 1. 

Amid concerns of the COVID-19 public health crisis, Gov. Andrew Cuomo issued an executive order exempting municipal and school boards from provisions of the state Open Meetings Law that require public access to locations where government meetings are conducted.

To comply with this order, the June 1 public hearing will be available for public viewing and participation via YouTube Live only. The meeting will stream in real-time on F-M’s official YouTube channel and will be archived on the channel for later viewing.

Information about the proposed budget and the vote, which will be conducted by absentee ballot only per New York state, is available on the Budget and Finance section of the website.
