Quakertown Community School Board reviewed an early 2012-13 budget that would require a 3 percent tax hike to maintain district programs and staffing.
The $93.6 million budget calls for raising taxes by 4.23 mills to 144.48 mills. That means a property owner with the district’s average assessment of $26,304, would pay about $3,801 — about $112 more — in property taxes. A mill is worth $1 for every $1,000 of a property’s assessed value.
“This is a status quo budget. There are no new initiatives, no new programs, and no new spending,” Superintendent Lisa Andrejko told directors on Thursday.
