Water, Refuse, and Tax Increase

Due to contracted utility service providers increasing their service rates in 2024, the Borough will need to increase our refuse and water rates, accordingly. The water rate increase imposed by the Borough is for non-PA American Water customers. Water rates will increase by 9.97%, while Refuse fees will increase to $138.75 per quarter per dwelling. Rate increases for water will be reflected on first quarter utility bills in 2024, and the refuse rate increase will take effect on the fourth quarter utility bills in 2023. Taxes for 2024 will increase to 5.4 mills of which a half a mill road tax is included in the overall tax rate. The funds generated from the road tax may only be used for street improvements, for which costs have continued to increase. The Borough performs approximately $1.3 million in roadwork improvements annually.
