Reynolds school directors on Monday adopted a proposed budget for the 2009-10 school year that holds the line on property taxes.

The spending plan of $18,316,105 is up by $770,714 compared to the current year’s budget of $17,545,391.

Taxes are expected to remain at 61 mills. Taxes last increased in the 2007-08 school year by 1 mill.

Board members do not want to burden the taxpayers during these tough economic times, said Beverly Morrison, chairman of the budget and finance committee.

“We’re doing our best,” she said.

A mill is $1 for every $1,000 of a property’s 1970 value. At 61 mills, a property assessed at $10,000 would carry a tax bill of $610. One mill brings the district $82,787.

The tentative budget will be on display for public viewing for the next 30 days. The board will vote on the final budget at their June 17 meeting.

The district covers Delaware, Pymatuning and West Salem townships and Fredonia.
