Township surplus allows for no tax increase
Although spending for 2019 is projected to increase for Old Lycoming Township, a surplus of 2018 funds will be carried over to keep taxes the same, supervisors announced Tuesday night.
The carry-over will allow the township to keep the millage rate at 4.713 mills for the upcoming year.
In other business, the supervisors are continuing their efforts to renovate a divider running along Roosevelt Avenue to Mill Lane.
According to township manager Robert Whitford, the state Department of Transportation has not been interested in assisting the township with their efforts to either update or remove the barrier, which has now fallen into disrepair. Director David Shirn witnessed its condition first hand and is calling for revamped efforts to convince PennDOT to assists in its renovation.
Old Lycoming Township announced they are attempting to fill vacancies in its recreations board. There are three vacancies that the township is seeking to fill.
The supervisors will meet next at 7 p.m. on Jan. 8 in the meeting room at 1951 Green Ave.
