Budget Proposal Up for Discussion


Monroeville will discuss its proposed 2013 budget, which includes a millage increase, at a workshop scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday in the municipal building.

The $27.3 million budget is about 2 percent bigger than this year's budget and includes an increase from 2.2 mills to 3.45 mills.

The council hasn't raised taxes since 1991. The millage increase would bring in about $2 million more in revenue, Manager Jeffrey Silka said.

At the workshop, five agencies and departments, including the police department and senior citizens center, will discuss their budget requests. Council will vote on a final budget on Dec. 11.

The budget does not factor in Allegheny County's court-mandated property reassessments, Silka said. Final figures for those are due by mid-December.

2013 plan wouldhold line on taxes

Whitehall's preliminary budget for 2013 maintains a property tax rate of 5.5 mills.

Council will meet at 9 a.m. Saturday in council chambers, 100 Borough Park Drive, to continue its budget discussions. Council began discussions last week on the spending plan, which shows an $8.8 million general fund budget and $4.5 million in the borough's sewer budget.

Money likely will be used from reserves to balance the budget, said borough Manager James Leventry. Whitehall is awaiting final reassessment figures, to be issued by the county next month, before finalizing its financial plans.
