Corbin Responds to Proposed Coatesville Property Tax Increase
HARRISBURG – Representative Becky Corbin (R-East Brandywine) today issued the following statement in response to Coatesville Area School District’s preliminary budget:

“Since taking office in 2012, I have supported annual increases in state funding for the district amounting to over 19 percent. As a state representative, I have no authority to tell the Coatesville Area School District how it should balance its budget. I am concerned that the school board’s preliminary plan would raise school property taxes by 8.4 percent when the rate of inflation has only risen 1.2 percent this past year in Pennsylvania.

“I would urge the school board to reexamine its budget before the final vote later this month. The school board must do its due diligence and go back to the drawing board and think of the taxpayers.

“I encourage the district to talk to other school boards around the Commonwealth and gather suggestions. It’s time to think outside the box and work toward a better solution.”

The 155th District consists of the following municipalities: West Brandywine, East Brandywine, Uwchlan, Upper Uwchlan, West Vincent, East Pikeland, Spring City, and part of Phoenixville.
