Taxes will stay the same in Aspinwall next year.

Officials approved the $2 million budget for 2014 and set the tax rate at 4.86 mills last week.

The budget's largest expenditure of $559,550 is for the police department. The largest revenue source is real estate taxes, estimated at $1 million.

A homeowner with the average property value of $181,300 will pay $881 in taxes next year.

Parking

Officials will wait to decide on any changes to borough parking rules.

Borough Manager Melissa Lang said the committee reviewing parking would like to review how other communities handle their parking before any decisions are made.

A proposal to make the borough parking lot free between 5 p.m. and 7 a.m. and raise some parking fines was presented earlier this month but some officials said they were not pleased with that idea.
