Columbia taxpayers will soon be paying more in school taxes.
According to the Lancaster Online "School briefs" shown below, the Columbia Borough School Board recently approved an increase of 2.5% as part of its 2019-20 budget. Although the article incorrectly states that the current millage is 25.63, the other figures shown are basically correct. The current millage, as shown in the millage chart below, is actually 25.8163.
Columbia Borough already has the highest school tax millage rate, as well as the highest overall millage rate (municipal, school, county) in Lancaster County, at 36.7273 mills.
