Tentative Canonsburg Budget Calls for Tax Increase
The 2013 spending plan also calls for a full-time paid firefighter.
Canonsburg residents could see their taxes get bumped by 1 mill next year—an increase that borough officials said would help pay for necessities such as a part-time human resources manager and road equipment for the public works department.
A one-mill increase would mean residents' tax bills would go up by about $13, Councilman Rich Russo has said.
The 2013 budget also has money earmarked for a full-time paid firefighter—for the first time in borough history. That money was allocated to help secure a grant that could partially pay for the position, Russo said Tuesday afternoon.
Council also agreed to dedicate one mill of its overall budget to parks and recreation.
Preliminary approval of the $4,393,322 spending plan is expected at a special meeting scheduled for 7 p.m. Nov. 20.
