HASD Administrators Pushing for 2-Mill Tax Increase
Hollidaysburg School District officials are pushing for a 2-mill tax increase when the board adopts its 2012-13 budget next week.
Retiring business manager Sam Wilson told board members Wednesday the money is needed to help close an $800,000 deficit in the district’s proposed $43-million spending plan. Revenues are project to come in at $42.2-million. Superintendent Dr. Paul Gallagher says officials have already trimmed $1.4-million in expenses.
The board has three proposed budgets to consider ranging from no tax increase to an increase of 2-mills. Director Wally Tomassetti says officials have a lot of information to absorb before next week’s vote.
Administrators argue that extra money is needed because of looming future pension payments the district will owe the state.
