The Red Lion Area School Board on Thursday adopted a resolution saying the board will not raise taxes above the rate set for the district by the Act 1 index for 2013-14, according to business manager and board secretary Terry Robinson.

The adjusted index for Red Lion is 2.3 percent. The board previously heard a budget update at its Jan. 10 meeting. Proposed expenses are expected to be about $3.4 million more than revenues for 2013-14, according to a news release.

"The school board and administration will continue to identify ways to either reduce expenses or increase revenues in an effort to minimize or eliminate the need for any associated real estate tax rate change for the upcoming year," the release said.
