GLSD adopts resolution to keep tax increase at or below 2.53 mills
By Dan Scifo
Bulletin Staff Writer

Members of the Greater Latrobe School Board recommended a resolution to operate within the cost-of-living index at Tuesday’s regular meeting.

The cost-of-living index is at 3.2 percent or 2.53 mills. That means the district would only be able to increase taxes at a maximum of about $854,000 if necessary for the upcoming 2017-18 budget. The value of one mill is $338,000 and the district isn’t required to adopt a final budget until June 30.
