PSBA Encourages Taxpayers to Get Involved with Local School District Tax Study Commissions

August 8, 2006 - Act 1 of 2006 (Pennsylvania Taxpayer Relief Act) requires each school district to set up a Local Tax Study Commission by Sept. 14, 2006. The commission may comprise either five, seven or nine members. The structure of the commission must reflect the socioeconomic, age and occupational diversity of the school district. One member may be a school board director. No appointee can be a school district official or employee, or relative of someone affiliated with the school.

I encourage any resident who is interested in serving on this commission to contact the school district or the board. The main office is 372-2210.

Government Information Online (GIO) is a free national online information service. Participating librarians specialize in finding government information sources of all kinds, and will try to answer your questions through chat or email.
