At the Oct. 2 meeting of the Herricks Board of Education, trustees continued to lay groundwork for the district’s financial gameplan for the 2014-15 year. 

Assistant Superintendent for Business Helen Costigan gave a report on the newly-assessed values of homes in the Herricks School District, from figures recently released by Nassau County.


“In Class 1, which is for homeowners, the assessment is down 2.2 percent...that’s a reduction from previous years,” she said. “What that 2.2 percent means is that people are challenging their assessments, which is lowering the assessment. If you haven’t challenged your assessment, you will probably end up paying a bigger share than someone who has successfully challenged and driven their assessment down.”
