DUNMORE SCHOOL DISTRICT
NOTICE OF ACT 1 REFERENDUM
Pursuant to Act 1, the Pennsylvania Department of Education publishes an index percentage applicable to the School District. The School District real estate tax increase for the next fiscal year is limited to the index percentage unless the proposed tax rate is approved by voters pursuant to a referendum or the School District qualifies for an Act 1 exception. As a result of special circumstances covered by an Act 1 referendum exception, a tax rate percentage increase above the index is required to try to balance the School District budget for the next fiscal year. This tax increase is required to provide a quality education program as reflected in the School District Preliminary Budget.
The School District intends to seek approval from the Pennsylvania Department of Education or the County Court as required by Act 1 for exceptions allowing an increase of the real estate tax as reflected in the School District Preliminary Budget. The Preliminary Budget is available for public inspection at the School District offices, 300 West Warren Street, Dunmore, Pennsylvania. On written request by any School District resident or taxpayer, the School District will provide a copy of the referendum exception applications upon filing with the State.
