    It will take more than a silver bullet to save the day. It’s not just the schools that face the whimsical approach of our state leaders. Local communities continue to be burdened by unfunded mandates from Albany and a property tax cap. Revenue streams for schools and communities are further restricted by the Star and Enhanced Star programs (along with exemptions for veterans, for example). While all good, popular, and arguably justified, the effect overall is a budgetary nightmare especially for those in a rural area. Meeting a payroll often means some accounting legerdemain to accomplish the act. New York State might be on the way up, but localities are on the way down.
