Sewickley Township officials said they see the municipality moving forward, introducing a proposed budget for 2013 without a tax increase and advertising for a part-time office clerk.

“I feel like we're growing,” Supervisor Wanda Layman said after the board met Wednesday.

Property taxes for 2013 are projected to remain at 10 mills, with 2 mills dedicated to ambulance, rescue and emergency services. A mill generates $42,000 in revenue.

The proposed budget of about $1.57 million lists a reserve surplus of $602,453.

Supervisor Alan Fossi said the 2012 expenses came in under budget.

“Last year's performance was good,” he said.

The anticipated revenue from the Act 13 Marcellus shale impact fees, collected by the state and administered by the Public Utilities Commission, was added to the 2013 budget with no allocations, Layman said.

Supervisors used the 2012 figure, released on Nov. 2 as $141,256, to estimate a low figure of $112,000 for 2013.

“We always like to estimate low in our revenues and high in our expenses because if we have more coming in, we can carry that over,” she said.

Supervisors agreed to advertise for a new clerk in the township building because of increased activity.
