PAWLING, N.Y. -- As other school districts are seeing its tax levies increase, the Pawling Central School District is seeing its tax levy decrease.

At Monday's Board of Education meeting, the district announced it had reduced its tax levy by two percent for the 2017-2018 school year. It is the third year in a row Pawling is seeing a tax levy decrease. Spending decreased 1.13 percent.

Neysa Sensenig, Assistant Superintendent of Finance at Pawling said the district received an increase in state aid and a decrease in enrollment. The district also finalized a Payment In Lieu Of Taxes agreement with The Hamlet at Pawling, a new housing development that opened 18 months ago.

The district has also seen several retirements over the past few years, Sensenig said.

"We're all doing a good job," Sensenig said. "We're doing a lot of good things in Pawling. We're going to do our best to keep moving in the right direction."
