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.
