Aspinwall's 2014 proposed budget would keep the property-tax rate steady.

Officials voted last week to advertise the proposed budget. The $2 million budget for the general fund would allow the borough to maintain a tax rate of 4.86 mills.

The police budget is the highest area of expenses for the borough, with $559,550 proposed for next year.

Officials expect to raise about $1 million in real-estate taxes, the borough's largest source of revenue.

Officials must approve the budget before the end of the year.


Paving work in the borough is complete for the year.

Crews paved several parts of the borough, including spots on Center Avenue, within the last several weeks.

Councilman Joe Giuffre said work also nearly is complete on curb cuts for people with disabilities. He said one more curb cut needed to be completed on Ninth Street.

Next meeting

The next council meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. Dec. 4 at the borough building on Commercial Avenue.
