WILLIAMSPORT - The town's property tax rate will not change under a $2.9 million budget approved Monday night, Mayor John W. Slayman said.
Williamsport's 2003-04 expenditures are about 4 percent more than this year's, based on the budgets approved each year.
Slayman said there are no significant new expenses next year, other that an increase in insurance costs.
The tax rate will stay at about 40 cents per $100 of assessed value. Slayman said the town's property tax rate has stayed at that level, or its equivalent under a previous assessment method, for at least 22 years.
The $1.2 million general fund includes $184,800 for salaries, not including those of the mayor and Town Council, $183,800 for police-related expenses and $111,700 for health and liability insurance.
