Linglestown Gazette: CD school board to discuss taxes

CD school board to discuss taxes

The Central Dauphin School Board is slated to act tonight on a state-mandated referendum that would cap next school year’s property tax hike at 4.1 percent.

Like last year, an amendment for a no-tax-increase budget is likely to be offered tonight, said board member Christian Malesic. He is unsure if the amendment will pass this time around.

"One thing working in the district's favor right now for holding the line on taxes is falling energy and fuel prices," Malesic said.

The board’s finance committee is working on developing a proposed budget for the 2009-2010 school year. Formal review of a preliminary budget by the full school board won’t get under way until May.

On a related issue, the board will discuss and possibly approve an energy savings program recommended by Honeywell. If approved, Honeywell technicians would evaluate the district’s transportation and building operations for ways to reduce costs associated with fuel, electricity, water and trash disposal.

Dauphin County Technical School on Locust Lane retained Honeywell to reduce energy costs, Malesic said.

The board meeting will begin at 7 pm in the Lecture Hall of Central Dauphin East High School. The public is welcome to attend.

To review the agenda, go to the board’s Web site – the tax and Honeywell proposals are located under agenda item “New Business.” (Click the + sign to the left of meeting date 10/27/2008, and then click + signs located beside agenda items to review issues that will be discussed.)
