Taxes rise for residents of Birdsboro in the upcoming year.
Birdsboro Council approved the 2014 proposed budget at the Dec. 2 meeting, which will increase the millage rate by .5 mills. This puts the millage rate for the borough from 6.1 mills to 6.6 mills.
The balanced budget shows proposed revenues and expenditures with a total of $2,058,825.
Board Vice President Neil McCauley was the only member to vote in opposition to the budget.
He stated his reasoning was “because it includes a tax increase...it’s making up for spending in the past and it’s catching up to us.”
Birdsboro Council meetings are held on the first and second Monday of each month. All meetings are held at Borough Hall, 202 E. Main St., Birdsboro and begin at 7 p.m.
