Radnor School Board Considering Low to No Tax Increase

A full day kindergarten program may start September, 2014.

The Radnor Township School Board voted on Tuesday to restrain its taxing power to no more than the state’s Act 1 index for 2013-14, which is 1.7 percent, reports Main Line Media News.

The newspaper reports that the board will not apply for Act 1 exceptions in the next fiscal year.

For the current fiscal year, the board voted to raise real estate taxes by 3.21 percent. Of that increase, 1.7 percent was the Act 1 index, the remainder of the increase coming from state-granted exceptions, of which there will be none in 2013-14), according to the article.

Also in school district news, the district has decided to postpone the implementation of a full-day kindergarten program to September, 2014. The original implementation date was September, 2013.

With $20 million in the bank, RTSB should be cutting taxes for the upcoming year and using the surplus (which happens to be our tax dollars) to fund a portion of the upcoming budget.

Bravo!! Also, use some of the money to slow down speeders on N. Wayne Ave. Speed limit is 25mph and most do between 40mph and 55mph. Enough already.
