When Mt. Pleasant Area School Board meets June 22, a tax increase of more than 2 mills for district residents will be on the agenda. During Monday's agenda meeting, board President Robert Gumbita read the proposed final budget resolution calling for a 2.1762 mill increase in the real estate levy. Brent Filak, business manager, said that during the last meeting, several weeks ago, the budget deficit was $417,700. Since that time, minor changes reduced the projected deficit to $368,261. The present tax rate is 83.7 mills. A mill brings in about $148,000.
