Aspinwall officials approve 2013 tax rate

Wednesday, Jan. 16, 2013, 9:00 p.m.
 

Aspinwall officials set the final tax rate for 2013 at 4.86 mills and approved its $1.9 million budget last week.

Both votes were delayed until final property tax assessment figures were available from Allegheny County.

The tax rate was adjusted from last year's 6.25 mills to keep taxes steady for this year.

Officials finalized the borough budget in November.

Borough council unanimously approved a franchise agreement with Verizon last week. The service will be available to about 90 percent of the community. Aspinwall also has a franchise agreement with Comcast.
