HEGINS – Although the Tri-Valley School Board hasn’t made any decisions on the budget for the 2017-18 fiscal year, the board voted unanimously last Wednesday evening to not raise taxes above the Act 1 index established by the Department of Education for the 2017-18 year.
The Act 1 index is 3.3 percent and the current real estate tax is 32.25 mills in the district.
Directors Diane Dietrich and Carl Shankweiler were absent from the meeting.
Even though the auditorium was empty for Wednesday evening’s meeting, Board President Jerry Beaver stressed the need for community members to step up and fill vacancies on the school board.
There are currently two vacancies in Hegins West, Region 3.
