$13.93 million

Today, O-R freelancer Laurie Carson has a report about the 2006-2007 budget approved Monday by the Chartiers-Houston School District Board of Education. According to Laurie, the budget includes "a 2.5-mill tax increase to pay off money borrowed for renovations at Allison Park Elementary and the junior/senior high school." More from the article:

As of July 1, the millage rate will be 95 mills. At that rate, the owner of a $100,000 home, with an assessed value of $25,000, will pay $2,375 in taxes, an increase of $63. A preliminary budget passed earlier this month set total spending at $14.069 million. On Monday, the board approved a scaled-down, final version that sets spending at $13.93 million and eliminates a teaching position.

Monday, the O-R's Heidi Price reports, the C-H school board also awarded a contact to install astro turf on the high school football field.
