Jordan Tax Service will take over tax collection for the Brentwood Borough School District beginning this spring.
School Board members in an 8-0 vote Monday agreed to terminate the district's contract with Berkheimer and Associates for delinquent real estate, occupational privilege and earned income tax, effective no later than May 17.
Board member Dale Johnson was absent.
Board members, then, in a separate 8-0 vote agreed for Jordan Tax to take over those duties.
“We thought a change was needed to have a more effective operation in collecting (these taxes),” Superintendent Ronald Dufalla said.
The changes should not affect taxpayers, Dufalla said.
