Slight Tax Hike Under Phoenixville School Budget

It's the lowest tax increase in recent years, the district said.

The Phoenixville Area School Board has approved advertising a final budget for the 2014-15 school year. 

The board voted, 6-2, at its May 22 meeting to approve an $82,080,834 final budget, The Reporter reported

The budget would mean a shortfall of about $500,000, which would lead to a 0.87 percent tax increase, The Reporter said. Though an increase, that's the lowest in recent years, the district said.

For a median-value home in the district, one of $133,540, that would mean a tax increase of $33.39 for next year, The Reporter said.

A preliminary budget approved in February would have meant an average tax increase of $148.22.

Nothing to worry about here. This small increase will be more than offset by the property tax reductions we are getting anytime now thanks to those gamling revenues. When are we getting that again?
