Mt. Lebanon Administration, Board Look To Cut Costs

With real estate taxes expected to rise to cover a proposed $113.3 million high school renovation and increased pension responsibilities, Mt. Lebanon administrators and school board members discussed this week how to cut costs for the 2010-11 budget year and beyond.
