Bullskin Township residents have not had a real estate property tax increase in more than 50 years, and they won't get one in 2013.

Supervisors this week passed a motion to keep the millage rate at 0.459 of a mill.

Lou Bell, tax collector for the township, said the township has one of the lowest millage rates, with residents paying just $45.90 on every $100,000 of assessed property value. Supervisors also passed a 2013 tentative budget with revenues and expenditures balanced at $1,163,425.

The big-ticket expenditures in the budget are wages at $295,000, paving at $144,942, health insurance at $130,956, and salt and ashes at $80,000.

On the revenue side, the township budgeted earned income tax at $525,000 and property tax at $120,000.

In other business, supervisors passed an ordinance establishing a 25-mph speed limit on Airport Road. Supervisor Deb Wiltrout said the township has had problems with speeding on the road and this ordinance will allow the Pennsylvania State Police to enforce the speed limit.
