Southwest Greensburg council unveiled a 2013 budget this week that calls for no hike in property taxes or garbage fees, according to the borough secretary.

Council's budget proposes a $681,600 general fund, $185,135 in the garbage account and nearly $49,000 in liquid fuels funding.

Council approved Wednesday the purchase of a 2012 Dodge Charger for $26,526 for the police department.

Borough officials will buy the vehicle from Tri-Star Motors, with specialized police equipment installed by Team Force of Johnstown.

The vehicle will replace a 2006 Ford Crown Victoria, which will be traded in, borough officials said.

Council will hold a meeting 6 p.m. Dec. 5 to discuss a possible residential rental ordinance.
