Buffalo Township plans vote on $1.9M spending plan
Buffalo Township real estate taxes are scheduled to remain the same for next year.
Supervisors on Wednesday night announced a proposed $1.9 million budget that would keep the township's property tax rate at 3.38 mills. Next year's spending proposal is about $250,000 more than this year's. The largest expense is a $325,000 outlay for police wages. Supervisors plan to vote on adopting a final budget on Dec. 11.
Residents can review the budget posted at the township building for the next 20 working days.
The township will pursue a $75,000 tax anticipation loan to serve as a financial bridge during the early part of next year.
