Business Manager Stuart Whiteleather said the tax-ceiling exceptions the district intends to seek would result in a tax increase closer to 1 mill, which would raise the tax on a $100,000 property about $100.
noted the situation would have been worse were it not for the $90 million increase in funding for public schools proposed by the governor.
State funds account for about 32.51 percent of Hamburg's revenue.
"Obviously the governor's proposals are somewhat positive in that we'll receive a little bit of an increase," Whiteleather
also noted that $328,590 in pension costs are one of the things for which the district can seek a tax-ceiling exception.
reiterated that nothing is final until the district feels confident in the projected numbers, especially concerning state funds.
