The Montour school board voted 9-0 tonight to approve a $62.14 million proposed budget for the 2014-15 school year that holds the property tax rate at 16.9 mills.

The owner of a home valued at $100,000 will continue to pay $1,690 a year.

Superintendent Donald Boyer said there is about a $2 million shortfall between the spending plan and the projected revenues of about $60.06 million, but the district has a month to make budget changes.

“One of our difficulties is that we do not have a final state budget, so we have to take our best guess at some things,” Mr. Boyer said. “In this entire document, we tried to overestimate expenditures and conservatively estimate revenue.”

Final budget adoption will be June.
