Dryden school budget; more on flooding

This morning's Ithaca Journal reports on a possible 9% levy hike in the Dryden schools budget for next year, though the recently-passed state budget "would drop the levy increase by 2 percent" if all goes well. BOCES services and a GED program at TC3 were among the items the board was debating. The board's final budget vote will be April 11th at 7:15pm in the Dryden Elementary School cafeteria.

There's more on yesterday's flooding, with an article looking at the continuing effects of the weekend's rain and flooding. The Journal talks with residents of Fall Creek Road whose basement flooded and had to be pumped out by the Freeville Fire Department, and notes that the Red Cross "found temporary shelter for the 13 displaced Freeville residents in an area motel," and handed out clean-up kits including "a bucket, mop and other cleaning supplies."
