I attended a Town Hall mtg. with John Lawrence yesterday. During his presentation he explained about the bad decisions made years ago by both Democrats and Republicans that have led to a deficit in the teacher retirement fund (a.k.a. PSERS) of $70 billion. The state is legally obligated to pay those pension costs. So, the state is mandating that local school districts pay ever increasing contributions to help cover the deficit. In Avon Grove our cost will increase about $1 million next year. A 2% property tax increase is necessary just to cover that cost without cutting educational programs. The proposed increase for next year's budget is 2.5%. The other .5% will only cover the expected increase in the number of students attending the Technical College High School. All other budget increases due to inflation, slight increase in teacher salaries, etc. are being offset by operational savings and by using money from our existing general fund. In other words we are spending a portion of our savings instead if cutting programs and/or higher tax increases. The vote on final budget approval will be on June 8. Please consider attending to stay more informed as to why your taxes are going up.
