WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Residents of Washington Township, Pa., are facing another year without a property tax increase.
The township supervisors have seen early drafts of the budget. They are scheduled to receive revisions in the next week, accept public comment Dec. 3 and adopt the budget Dec. 17.
The early version, which included all requests from department leaders, included $4.8 million in expenditures, a 9 percent increase over the 2007 budget, Township Manager Mike Christopher said.
"This is the first draft and doesn't include any cuts," he said.
Some increases in expenditures were additional officers with the police department, increased allocations for employee benefits and higher allotments for fuel, Christopher said.
