BRIGHTON, N.Y. (WHEC) -- For the second time, Brighton taxpayers had a chance to vote on the school district's budget.

This time, it passed.

The district's original budget failed back in May because it proposed a nearly five-percent tax increase.    

The new budget, passed Tuesday, cuts that increase to 2.3 percent, keeping it under the state tax cap.

One woman who spoke to News10NBC voted in support of both proposals. 

"I have lived here a really long time but I think, not only are the schools great, but that it also protects our property values to have a great school district here in Brighton," said Elyse Gilman, resident. 

The proposal passed by more than 2,200 votes to 500.
