East Pennsboro advertises proposed budget, fire tax online

ENOLA, Pa. (WHTM) – Residents of East Pennsboro Township can now view official proposed 2016 budget documents on the township’s website. The documents include the newly proposed fire tax, which would assist in funding volunteer fire companies.

A public meeting is scheduled for December 2 to discuss the fire tax. Last week, several volunteer firefighters and other residents filled a township commissioners meeting to offer support for the new tax. The board of commissioners unanimously voted to include the fire tax proposal in the budget.

According to projections outlined in the online meeting notice, the fire tax of forty-seven one-hundredths (0.47) mils on each dollar of assessed valuation of property would result in approximately $840,000 in taxes to be designated solely to support emergency services.

If enacted, the fire tax would go into effect, along with the rest of the East Pennsboro Township 2016 budget on January 1.
