TASD OKs football lighting offer | News, sports, jobs

TYRONE — A quote for football field lighting was approved by the Tyrone Area School Board last week.

Musco Sports Lighting LLC will do the job for $332,676.

Superintendent Leslie Estep said there will be a presentation at 7pm on October 4th on the full refurbishment plans for the football field.

The board also passed an ordinance extending the term of exemptions, deductions, rebates and credits for real estate, earned income tax, net mercantile profits and business privilege taxes within a Keystone Opportunity Expansion or Improvement Zone in Snyder Township.

Estep said it is a state program used to attract developers to undeveloped land.

With the approval of the program by all parties involved, including the district, the zone will continue for another seven years.

Board members also approved a transfer of $600,000 from the general fund to the capital reserve fund for the 2021-22 fiscal year.

Estep said that each year the board budgets an amount to transfer to the capital reserve fund and waits until the end of the fiscal year to ensure the money is still available.
