Hatboro Holds Line on Taxes

The Hatboro Borough Council adopted its 2013 budget this week.

Hatboro residents could see higher taxes next year from the Hatboro-Horsham School District, but the borough has kept its municipal tax for 2013 flat.

On Monday night the Hatboro Borough Council unanimously adopted its $4.6 million 2013 budget, which maintains the current 7.878 millage rate.

The spending plan reflects a .64 percent increase in the general fund, while cutting "non-employee related expenses" to 2010 actual expenses, according to Councilman Vincent LaSorsa.

In addition to maintaining the existing millage rate, LaSorsa said previously that he "rearranged" some of the borough's taxes. LaSorsa said the amounts for fire protection and debt service were increased, while the general fund rate was reduced.

It is refreshing to see fiscal responsibility in a government setting. You would think there were republicans running the show. Not to sound spoiled but maybe next year we could actually have a tax decrease??? Good job to the Council.

Love that new website. It's just as outdated as the old website. The minute page is a wreck, nothing posted since the summer. I guess the staff is still on vacation.

But if you work in Hatboro your $10.00 occupational tax went up to $52.00 a year. 400% increase ? Why ?
