By now, homeowner’s in our Borough have received tax bills for 2018-2019. Happily, the total tax rate has dropped from $1.902 per $100 of assessed value to a new rate of $1.878. The main components of the bill, County, Municipal, and School Taxes all have a reduced rate, while the Library, County Open Space and Municipal Open Space taxes remained flat.
Earlier this year, upon the recommendation of the Sewer Committee, the Council approved a reduction in the sewer fee of $100 per household for 2018.
While we are enjoying the fruits of efficiencies right now, please understand that circumstances could require a higher tax/fee rate in the future. This all depends on the services required by our residents, the valuation of our real estate, and potentially, unexpected expenses.
In the last several months this municipality has made some important strides in the operation of our government.
