Lower Gynedd-Ambler-Whitepain Pa - over 4 years
The Wissahickon School Board meets tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the district offices, 601 Knight Rd. in Ambler.
On the agenda is the board vote to approve the final budget for the 2012-13 school year, with expenditures estimated in the amount of $85,814,013 and revenue of $83,324,743. The final budget does not include a tax increase for residents, leaving the millage rate at 17.65 mills.
Tonight, the Wissahickon Valley Public Library will also present to the Board on their budget needs. According to document 9 as part of the Board agenda, which is a letter from library director Anne Frank, the library is asking for an increase for 2.5 percent for the 2012-13 fiscal year, which is $25,050.
The library tax is a separate line item on a family’s real estate bill each year, and the increase would amount to $1.49 more per family with a home appraised at $200,000.
