Voters in the Kingston City School District will head to the polls on Tuesday to say yay or nay to a $180,813,057 budget proposal for the 2019-20 school year, one which school officials tout as maintaining program and helping expand pre-kindergarten offerings, while keeping the tax levy increase at just 1.45 percent.

“It’s similar to regular golf,” said the city’s parks superintendent. “But the neat thing about disc golf is you don’t have to worry about a tee time, you don’t have to pay for greens fees, though there might be a nominal charge if there’s a tournament going on. We really believe it’s going to be a great asset to our parks system. We’re really pleased to have this happen.”
