Due to sound fiscal planning by the Westmoreland Central School District and the benefit of state aid, the proposed capital project carries no tax increase.
Total Cost of Proposed Capital Project - $7,435,800
State Share - $5,970,250*
Local Share - $1,465,550**
*If approved by voters, the district would receive $5,970,250 in state aid for the capital project.
**The local share of the capital project, or what district taxpayers are responsible for, would be offset by using funds already saved in the district’s capital reserve account, allowing for no tax increase.
