Final Budget Meeting Tonight

The Abington Board of Commissioners will hold its final 2013 budget meeting tonight at the township building.

Final Budget Meeting Tonight

 

At a mid-November budget workshop, the consensus of the Abington Board of Commissioners was to move forward and advertise a final budget that will include a 0.05 millage increase in the fire tax and the use of $315,000 of fund balance to cover capital projects … and a $484,000 budget gap.

The proposed tax increase would bump the fire tax from 0.589 mills to 0.639 mills — and would generate about $171,300, though the money could only be used for fire-related expenses.

The millage increase means a homeowner with a home assessed at $150,000 would pay $96 annually in fire tax, up about $8 over last year; a homeowner with a house assessed at $200,000 would pay $128, up $10 over the 2012 rate.

The meeting starts at 8 p.m. at the township building, 1176 Old York Road, Abington.
