GREENCASTLE, Pa. — This is the third year there won’t be a tax increase for Antrim Township residents.
At a special meeting to pass the budget last week, the Antrim Township Supervisors unanimously passed their 2013 budget.
The budget not only held the line on a zero mill property tax rate, but also reduced an amusement tax.
Township Administrator Brad Graham said the amusement tax affects three organizations and generates about $10,000 for the township.
“In today’s economy, it was a little bit of a burden, for all the more it generated, so rather than do away with it altogether, the supervisors passed a resolution to drop it from 3 percent to 0 percent,” Graham said. “We (the township) won’t get anything now (from the amusement tax).
“With three entities, the supervisors were just trying to make things a little more competitive for them.”
The township’s general fund revenue is budgeted at $3,093,920.
