The West Shore School District voted last month to approve a proposed final budget with a 0.56 percent increase in property taxes for residents living in York County.

The school board did not discuss any millage rates at the May 8 board meeting when the $101.2 million proposed budget was approved, said Ryan Argot, the district's director of federal programs.

But board documents show the proposed increase for York County residents will be 0.07 mills, or about $10.52 more for a person with a property valued at $150,000.

Argot said the district plans to use an estimated $68,879 from its fund balance to cover a small gap in the budget.

He added no programs have been cut, and there will not be any staff furloughs this year to balance the budget.

The school board is scheduled to vote to approve the final budget at its meeting Thursday.
