Susquehanna Township expects no tax increase for 2013 …

October 21, 2012

Susquehanna Township officials expect to present a no-tax-increase preliminary budget for 2013 in November ? a contrast to last year?s 24 percent hike to repair aging storm drains.

Budget and Finance Committee Chair Jody Rebarchak said at the township commissioners? Oct. 11 meeting that the citizens? budget committee ? consisting of residents who review and comment on the budget ? had considered a spending plan ?with no tax or fee increases.?

?Such a budget is possible, in part, due to the prudent financial management of township staff,? Rebarchak said. ?They hold the line on spending in their respective departments each year without sacrificing the quality of services received by residents or the safety of township employees.?

A zero-tax-hike budget would keep property taxes at 2.598 mills, for a $259.80 bill on a home assessed at $100,000. Last year?s $11 million spending plan increased property taxes by 24 percent to finance repairs to an aging infrastructure that had been stressed by 2011?s severe storms.

The preliminary budget will be released at the Nov. 8 commissioners? meeting.
