Property owners in Plum will not see an increase in their school taxes for the 2014-15 year.

The Plum School Board on Monday night voted to approve a $58.3 million budget that was balanced by using $723,000 from a $2.5 million capital projects fund, $574,561 from the district's reserve fund and eliminating the use of Kelly Educational Services that finds substitute workers. The elimination of Kelly is expected to save the district about $67,000, Superintendent Timothy Glasspool said.

The vote was 5-4 with Sal Colella, Kevin Dowdell, John St. Leger and Richard Zucco voted against the budget.

The tax rate remains at 18.758 mills.
