June 30, 2022
Following three hours of back and forth discussion and disagreement among board members and dozens of speakers from the audience providing input on the upcoming budget, the Hollidaysburg School District Board of Directors approved a 1.25 percent tax increase, putting the current millage at 9.5505 mills. This means $51,899,317 in this upcoming yearâ€™s revenue total and $55 million in expenditures. The projected deficit for the 2022-23 school year is still $3.2 million.
