The North Penn School Board has approved a proposed final budget for the next school year.
The spending plan totals about 227-million dollars and includes a two-point-one percent property tax hike. School Board President Vince Sherpinsky says, the increase falls within the range of a cost of living adjustment:
“As we promise din the past we stayed within the base index for Act 1 and we made that promise years ago, and many of us ran on that promise in the past. We intend to keep that promise and that is what our proposed budget is.”
The property tax increase translates into about 72-dollars for the average homeowner in the district.
