LIPA PILOT Payments Received

June 30, 2023

Dear Blue Waves Families,

The Riverhead Central School District is pleased to announce that the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) PILOT payments for the 2022-2023 and 2023-2024 school years have been received. LIPA has made good on the $5,326,971.49 total of their agreement, of which $5,135,948.43 is for the District, $190,105.42 is for Riverhead Free Library and $917.64 is for the Baiting Hollow Free Library. We will send the portion for the libraries to their administrators. The PILOT payments were accounted for in the proposed 2023-2024 proposed budget approved by the community this past May and in the reduction made in the proposed 2022-2023 real property tax levy made in October 2022. These funds will be used to support our programs, services and operational activities, enhancing experiences and opportunities for our students.


Dr. Augustine E. Tornatore

Superintendent of Schools
