The Gateway School Board last week created a three-person committee to seek new revenue sources for the district.

The committee chairman is school director Chad Stubenbort, who has voiced concern with recent tax increases approved by municipal and school officials.

“The purpose of the committee is to think outside of the box and for us to find additional revenue sources in the district, so that ultimately when we get back in to the budget process, we don't have to discuss raising taxes,” Stubenbort said.

The committee also includes school directors Stephanie Byrne and Neal Nola. Each of the committee members was elected to the school board for the first time last year.

Stubenbort asked residents and business owners in Monroeville and Pitcairn to contact committee members with ideas for additional revenue sources.

Board member email addresses are listed at www.gatewayk12.com/BoardofSchoolDirectors.aspx.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
