Tax Rates On Township Agenda

LOWER POTTSGROVE PA – Township commissioners are expected to make good tonight (Thursday, Nov. 20, 2008) on a pledge they volunteered earlier in the month: to avoid raising township taxes in 2009.

The Board of Commissioners, when it meets at 7 p.m. in Lower Pottsgrove’s offices at 2199 Buchert Rd., are scheduled to act on motions to advertise its local services tax rate, real estate tax rate, and street light assessment tax rate for next year.

If it approves those measures, the board also will release its proposed 2009 township budget to the public effective next Monday (Nov. 24, 2008), according to township Manager Rodney Hawthorne. The budget is expected to be available for examination Monday through Friday during regular hours at the township offices.

Also on the commissioners’ agenda:

The agenda, which has been available for download from the township’s website since Wednesday (Nov. 19, 2008) also notes that board members expect to be involved in an executive session to discuss personnel matters. Those discussions, if held, will not be open to the public.
