The Chartiers Valley School Board approved the district’s first tax hike in six years on Tuesday night.
The .3892 mill increase means an additional $38.92 in taxes for every $100,000 of your property’s value.
Overall, Chartiers Valley still has the lowest property tax rate of any school district in Allegheny County, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Residents pay $1,660 for every $100,000 of a property’s value.
The district used about $500,000 from its fund balance to balance the 2016-17 budget. Chartiers Valley has $2.8 million remaining in its fund balance.
The district recently broke ground on a $78 million upgrade of its middle school and high school buildings.
The school board voted 6-2 on Tuesday to approve the increase.
