the usual news...LVSD spends and taxes more...it never ends.... up, up, and up

Property owners in the Ligonier Valley School District will see a 1.5-mill increase in school taxes.
School directors voted unanimously to approve a $28.2 million final budget that takes the levy on real estate to 76.5 mills at its June 11 meeting. The budget estimates revenues at $27.7 million, and it proposes using $574,756 from the district's fund balance to cover expenditures, such as the Laurel Valley Elementary School roof replacement.
Board member Kim Dickert-Wallace was not present.
The district's average taxpayer, with a home with a median assessed valuation of $16,890, will see an increase of $25.34 from last year. One mill brings in about $169,000 to the district, and there are 4,745 properties in the district.
