There’s good news for taxpayers in Conway. According to the Conway Daily Sun, on Monday night Superintendent Carl Nelson shared with the Conway School Board that the district will be getting $500,000 back from its insurance provider. Those funds will go to offset taxes at the end of the 2014-15 school year. During this recent budget season Nelson and the board had been notified by its health insurance provider — Harvard Pilgrim — that the district’s rates would be increasing for the upcoming school year. Nelson asked the company for a guaranteed maximum price for the increase and was told it would be 8.99 percent. The final number was much lower than expected. It was, in fact, a slight decrease over the previous year. On top of the $500,000 in health insurance savings, the board will be returning an additional $14,226 to offset taxes after purchasing a new school bus for handicapped students for $60,774. Voters approved $75,000 for a bus last month during the voting portion of the school meeting.
