The North Hills school board Thursday approved a proposed final budget that raises taxes by 0.35 mills to 17.41 mills.

The increase will amount to approximately $47 a year for the owner of a home with the median price range of $135,000, said David Hall, finance director. One mill generates approximately $2.6 million.

The $925,000 raised by the tax increase will be put into the capital fund to pay for items under the Innovations in Education plan presented last month by superintendent Patrick Mannarino. The plan includes updating the middle and high school libraries for digital resources and creating a Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM) Center at the middle school.

The $71.7 million budget also includes four additional teaching positions.

The budget was approved by an 8-1 vote. Michael Yeomans said he voted against the budget because he still has questions about revenues and expenditures.

The final budget will be voted on during the June 5 meeting.
