Not much controversy yesterday as all the school budgets in Niagara County passed except for Niagara-Wheatfield ... most pretty easily, in fact ...

Out of nearly 1,700 votes, Lockport's budget got nearly 1,200 yes votes ... Things were a little closer in the Falls where that budget passed by about 300 votes ...

Things didn't work out as well in Niagara-Wheatfield, where voters turned down a proposed override of the new state tax cap ... More than 2,000 people voted against the measure out of 3,700 ballots ... And the district needed 60 percent to override the cap ...

Also Royalton-Hartland School District residents passed the Middleport Free Library tax levy ... That district will continue to fund more than $100,000 for the library ...
