School property tax relief is coming to veterans living within the Mattituck-Cutchogue School District next school year.
The school board voted 6-0 without discussion at Tuesday’s meeting to approve a “basic maximum” exemption, which is expected to increase property taxes for all other district residents by about $17 annually. Board vice president Charlie Anderson was absent.

The Oysterponds school board didn’t take any action on a veterans tax exemption program Tuesday night and decided to reopen the discussion in the spring, meaning the exemption will not be in effect for this year.
Greenport School District Superintendent Michael Comanda is expected to give a presentation Wednesday night to discuss creating a full-day pre-K program at the elementary school, according to the school board meeting agenda.
