The East Huntingdon Township Supervisors passed a tentative $5.4 million budget for 2014 year.

Supervisors set property tax rate at 2.25 mills which reflects no tax increase.

“We haven't raised taxes here for about 40 years,” Supervisor Joel Suter said.

The supervisors reported they are ready for snow removal and winter weather and have sufficient supplies for the upcoming winter season.

“We have all our snow fences up and we are ready to go,” Suter said.

Supervisors hired a CPA or firm to handle the township accounts.

The motion authorizes the township secretary to prepare and advertise its intent to appoint a firm of certified or public accountants to replace the elected auditors to examine all of the accounts of the township of East Huntingdon for the fiscal year 2013 and thereafter as required.

“Most of the townships around us are going that route due to the complexities of the nature of the accounts,” Suter said. “It is in the best interest of the public if we have a CPA do that.”
