Tax hike likely in Lower Paxton

Lower Paxton's string of no-tax-hike township budgets will most likely end in 2012 despite spending being limited to items that are deemed to be absolutely necessary.

Last month the supervisors were leaning toward a property tax hike of 1.3 mils, which would increase the tax bill on a home assessed at $200,000 by about $40 a year.

Township manager George Wolfe said he would prepare the final budget using a millage increase of 1.3 mils for review and action at the December workshop meeting.

In a related matter, the township authority last month decided to hold the line on the sewer rate for 2012 due to the proposed tax increase. The current rate is $72 per quarter.
