At the Dec 9 meeting Council will be passing the budget (see below) and ratifying an ordinance to raise the general taxes by one-half of a mil. How will this affect you? It is $5 increase per $10,000 of assessed value.
A property assessed at $75,000 would see an increase of $37.50 per year which is $3.13 per month. A property valued at $100,000 would see an increase of $50.00 per year which is $4.17 per month. If the value is $150,000 it would be an increase of $75.00 per year so $6.25 per month.
Council is discussing if fireworks should be banned in the Borough. If you have an opinion please let us know. Keep informed by joining the meetings.
