Danville School Board Poised To Raise Real Estate Taxes

Real estate taxes in the Danville Area School District will likely be increasing by nearly 3-percent, as the School Board earlier this week approved at tentative budget for the 2019-2020 school year. The $41 million spending plan calls for a tax hike of 2.7-percent. District officials say the increase is needed to cover Danville’s share of the nearly $29-million expansion and renovation project at the Columbia Montour Vo-Tech. Danville’s share will be nearly $7 million or just over 24% of the cost. The Danville School Board is expected to adopt a final budge at a June 12th meeting.
