Residents in Northport voted overwhelmingly in favor of the school budget during a June 9 referendum.

The $2,936,190 budget was approved by a vote of 93 in favor to 5 opposed.

The budget for the 2015-2016 year budget includes one-time items such as tuition for students attending RSU 20 or RSU 71 schools, start-up costs for a construction project for a middle school addition to Edna Drinkwater School, and renovations to the existing facility, according to previously published reports.

Residents of Northport approved withdrawal from RSU 20 last fall. The school budget, which also won near-unanimous support during the annual town meeting last week, is the first for the newly formed Northport School District.
