Southold School District Superintendent David Gamberg is expected to give a presentation on his 2013-14 preliminary spending plan at tonight’s 7:30 p.m. school board meeting.

According to the agenda, Mr. Gamberg will go over the district’s budget process, revenue, expenditures and give a review about the state-mandated tax levy cap.

Under Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s proposed budget for the next fiscal year, Southold would receive about $1.4 million in state aid, down nearly 12 percent compared to the current school year.

During last month’s Longwood Regional Legislative Breakfast in Middle Island, local elected officials told a group of Long Island educators they believe the majority of cuts in the governor’s preliminary spending plan will be restored.

The state Legislature is expected to approve its budget by April 1.

In May, the district’s $27 million budget carrying a 2.93 percent increase in the tax levy passed by a 534 to 289 vote.
