County Council forecasts 2.8 percent tax increase, Media Borough forecasts no increase
From the Delaware County times:
MEDIA — The preliminary draft of the county’s 2013 budget includes a 2.8 percent tax hike, according to a memo county Executive Director Marianne Grace recently presented to Delaware County Council… The proposed budget calls for a millage rate of 5.452, which is an increase of 0.15 mills or 2.8 percent, according to Grace. A mill represents $1 in tax for every $1,000 in assessed property value.
Media Borough will be presenting the preliminary balanced budget to the public on Thursday November 15th, but as Chair of the Finance Committee I will be recommending no tax increase for Media Borough.
