School taxes are going up for residents of Bridgeville, Collier, Heidelberg, and Scott Township.
Last week, the Chartiers Valley School board voted 6-2 to raise the school’s real estate tax by .4885 mills. In other words, taxpayers will have to contribute an additional $48 for every $100,000 of their assessed property value.
The school’s total millage is now 17.5595, or $1,756 for every $100,000 of property value.
Despite the raises, Chartiers Valley still has one of the lowest school taxes in Allegheny County.
Voting yes were Tony Mazzarini, Julie Murphy, Mark Kuzinski, Darren Mariano, Robert Kearney, and Eric Kraemer.
Voting no were Jeff Choura and Brian Kopec.
Sandy Zeleznik was not present for the vote.
Last June, Chartiers Valley raised school taxes by .4643 mills.
Chartiers Valley’s overall budget is $67.4 million for the 2019-2020 school year.
