It's been more than 20 years since Vanderbilt property owners have faced a tax increase and that won't change next year.

Council on Tuesday passed the 2013 budget with revenues set at $39,410 and expenditures set at $30,375.

The millage rate was set at 1.040.

In other business, code enforcement officer Joe Ambrose reminded residents that burning is allowed in the borough only on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

“I've been getting a lot of burning complaints this month,” he said.

Council asked residents to contact state police at Uniontown when they see four-wheel, all-terrain vehicles driving on roadways or in the borough park.

A motion was passed to renew workers compensation insurance for $5,647.

Council appointed Sheila Kurtz as representative to the Southwest Regional Tax Bureau committee delegation and Jeff Walters as the alternate.
