The South Fayette school district's proposed budget for the 2013-14 school year contains a tax increase of about one-half mill.

School board members voted 6-2 tonight, with one member absent, to approve a $41.76 million proposed spending plan and a property tax rate of 24.44 mills.

The 0.503-mill tax hike would cost the owner of a $100,000 home about $50 more a year. School directors did not approve a 0.31-mill special increase for retirement expenses, although the state had granted it.

The rate includes a 4.38-mill reduction to offset gains from Allegheny County property assessments.

Before final budget approval June 25, the board could choose to increase or decrease the tax rate, Superintendent Bille Rondinelli said.
