Harrisburg School District has $10 million surplus

There’s been a major financial turnaround in the Harrisburg School District.

At Monday night’s budget committee meeting, abc27 learned the district has a $10 million surplus.  That’s a big change from the $17.5 million deficit two years ago.

Major cost-cutting was the key, according to officials.  The change likely means no tax increase for city residents.

So how will the district spend its surplus?  One scenario is spending $3 million for required upgrades to make every building energy efficient, $2 million to restore wages and $5 million to be saved for whatever is needed in the future.
