BEDFORD, N.Y. – The proposed Bedford school budget put together by interim Schools Superintendent John Chambers cuts more than a dozen teachers and raises taxes by just under four percent, according to lohud.com.

Chambers' budget is attempting to put a dent in an $8.9 million budget deficit, lohud.com said.

The 3.8 percent tax increase would override the state's mandated tax cap and require a vote from residents, reported lohud.com.

A public hearing is scheduled for May 4, and a final vote is expected on May 17, lohud.com noted.
