Proposed Preliminary Budget on Display


Notice of ACT 1 Referendum Exception

Pursuant to Act 1, the Pennsylvania Department of Education publishes an index % applicable to the District.  The District real estate tax increase for the next fiscal year is limited to the index % unless the proposed tax rate is approved by voters pursuant to a referendum or the District qualifies for an Act 1 exception.  As a result of special circumstances covered by an Act 1 referendum exception, a tax rate % increase above the index may be required to balance the District budget for the next fiscal year.  This tax increase is required to provide a quality education program as reflected in the District’s Preliminary budget.

The District intends to seek approval from the Pennsylvania Department of Education as required by an Act 1 for an exception allowing increase of the real estate tax as reflected in the District’s Preliminary Budget.  The Preliminary Budget is available for public inspection at the Administration Center, 890 Valley Street, Enola, PA. The preliminary budget will be adopted at the regular meeting of the East Pennsboro School Board set for Thursday February 2nd, 2017 at 7:30pm. On written request by any District resident or taxpayer, the District will provide a copy of the referendum exception application.
