Residents in School Administrative District 13 approved a $3.4 million school budget for 2015-2016 on Tuesday.

The budget was approved by an overall vote of 93-43. It passed 53-13 in Bingham and 40-30 in Moscow. There were also two voided votes in Bingham.

The vote Tuesday was the final step in the budget validation process after residents initially approved the $3,432,903 budget on May 28. The figure represents an increase of $97,896, or about 3 percent, from the current $3,335,007 budget.

The amount of money to be raised in local taxes has decreased by about $9,000 in Bingham and $14,000 in Moscow because of an increase in the amount of school subsidies available to the district.
