Salisbury Commissioners Pass $11.9 Million Budget for 2013

Salisbury Township's $11.9 million budget for 2013 includes an average $30 increase for property owners.

The Salisbury Township Board of Commissioners passed an $11.9 million budget for 2013 last week that will result in a 10 percent tax increase.

The increase was largely due to the addition of a new police officer and two public works employees to understaffed departments amidst declining revenue and increased expenses.

The total real estate tax will increase to 1.42103 mills, which would mean a property owner would pay an estimated $330.70 a year on a property assessed at an average $232,400. The average increase comes to $30.

Revenues are projected to be $5.9 million and expenses are projected to be $6.1 million. The tax increase and fund balance will make up the $212,000 deficit.

On November 16 and December 4, it was reported that the proposed budget had no tax increase. That way the public is not upset. Then over the Christmas holiday, they vote in a 10% tax increase at the las minute! It looks like they intended to raise taxes all along and lied because they were too cowardly to face the public. Soriano and the commissioners are a weasely bunch.
