Abington Talks Budget Tonight
There's a $484K budget gap to work out.
The Abington Board of Commissioners will hold a budget presentation tonight at the township building.
Last week, the board of commissioners approved a motion adopting a preliminary general fund budget for 2013 of $34.32 million; this includes an unfunded difference of about $483,800.
Approving the preliminary budget is merely procedural, and is keeping in line with the First Class Township code; it's not binding.
Should these figures stand, the general purpose millage rate would increase by 0.09241 to 3.42251 mills; the fire millage rate would increase by 0.050667 mills to 0.639667.
A homeowner with a house assessed at $150,000 would pay $609 in annual taxes, up about $21 over last year; a homeowner with a home assessed at $200,000 would pay $812 annually, up about $28.
The meeting will take place tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the township building.
