Pleasantville schools’ $45 million budget would raise tax rate by 1.8 percent
01 May 2012, 1:17 pm by
Property owners in the Pleasantville School District would pay a 1.8 percent tax rate increase under a $45 million budget proposed for next year.
The Board of Education and district officials have proposed a spending plan for 2012-13 which represents a 1 percent increase over the current budget, or $500,000 more.
About $420,000 of that extra spending would pay for employee benefits and state-mandated retirement system payments.
If passed by a majority of district voters on May 15, next year’s budget would carry a tax rate of $1,361.89 per $1,000 of assessed property value, or $24.15 more than the current rate of $1,337.74.
A homeowner with a house assessed at the Mount Pleasant town average of $8,000 would pay $10,895 next year, or $193 more.
A public hearing is planned for Monday at 7:30 p.m. in the Library Media Center of the high school at 60 Romer Ave.
