Taxpayers in the Hampton Township School District can expect to pay about $56 more to fund the the 2013-14 budget.
That's how much 0.16 of a mill increase will cost the average homeowner in Hampton, according to board director Bryant Wesley and confirmed by Jeff Kline, director of administrative services. The exact amount will depend on each homeowner's new assessed value. Mr. Kline said more than 280 assessments are still being challenged in the district.
The 2013-14 proposed final budget was approved with a 9-0 unanimous vote by the board. It includes $43,412,061 in revenues, $43,830,061 in expenditures with the difference being funded by the district using $413,000 from its PSERS stabilization fund and the millage increase.
Changes could still be made in June when the board votes on the final budget.
