Linglestown Gazette: EXCLUSIVE: C.D. residents to avoid tax hike, finally

EXCLUSIVE: C.D. residents to avoid tax hike, finally

Updated at 4:20 pm ...

Linglestown-area property owners won't get hit with a school property tax hike in 2008, ending the string of consecutive annual increases at seven.

Central Dauphin School Board member Christian Malesic informed Linglestown Gazette this morning that his no-tax-increase motion was passed by the board Monday night.

The board was forced by state law to adopt a resolution on the school property tax rate even though the budget for the 2008-2009 school year won't be formally introduced until after the New Year.

For additional info on last night's vote, see a comment from Malesic on this post, and check out the Linglestown Forum on PennLive.com, see #267 and #268.

In other business, the board is considering a notification system that would quickly inform parents if a school bus broke down or a snowstorm disrupted classes.

Malesic got a lot of heat the past few months. I do not know enough about him or his political views to make judgements, but let's see where all his haters are now.

268. No Tax Increase
by CMalesic, 12/4/07 15:23 ET
WE DID IT! Last night, on 3 Dec 07, the Central Dauphin School Board passed an amended resolution to ensure that there would be NO TAX INCREASES in the coming year.
This is incredible news after many years in a row of continuous tax increases. Though I was the architect of the language for the amendment and the prime lobbyist for this cause, I can not take credit. True credit goes to Mr. Justin MsShane who made the official motion to amend the resolution, and Mr. Ed Troxell who seconded the motion. What’s more, accolades go to all nine School Board Directors who saw the wisdom in voting unanimously for “Better Education, WITHOUT MORE TAXATION” and to the staff who worked tirelessly to make this possible.

I am proud to serve on this Board; which has already shown in its first official action, its responsiveness to the people. And, I am proud to represent the people of Central Dauphin School District.

We have given this School District back to the people!
