CV eyes potential tax increase

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

The Cumberland Valley School District is looking at a possible tax increase to balance next year's budget.

The district presented the budget at Monday night's school board meeting. It includes a 2.1 percent tax increase. That's an extra $46.50 a year for a home valued at $250,000.

"We're really dealing with healthcare costs, wages and salary that really eat up the bulk of that tax increase," said Superintendent Dr. Frederick S. Withum, III.

The budget does not include a multi-million dollar expansion project, which the district has discussed. District officials had said the construction itself would not require a tax increase, but the extra staffing might.
