North Huntingdon property tax likely to remain the same next year
North Huntingdon property owners will not see their township real estate tax bill increase next year under a $14 million preliminary budget commissioners passed Wednesday.
The 2018 budget holds the line on the property tax at 9.23 mills. The total budget, including revenue from all sources, is about $16.7 million.
Commissioner Tony Martino, board president, said commissioners will vote on adoption of the final budget next month. The commissioners meet Dec. 14 and Dec. 20.
The budget the township will advertise is similar to the fiscal plan the board discussed Nov. 9.
The township plans to use about $2.1 million from the reserve fund to balance the general fund.
It plans to spend about $1.1 million on road paving next year, plus $100,000 for repairing rural roads. Road work done by the public works department will amount to a few hundred thousand dollars.
