Montour County property owners dodge tax increase
DANVILLE – No tax increase for Montour County property taxpayers–and no pay raises for Montour County ‘county-workers.’ Montour County Commissioner Trevor Finn tells the Press-Enterprise that being “stingy” over the past few years has apparently paid off.
The commissioners say there will be no property tax increase in 2013 for residents of Montour County. Helping to balance the 7.5 million dollar 2012 spending plan was a bit more tax revenue coming in. He said that is thanks to new construction and improvements on existing properties, along with the fact the county workers agreed to forgo raises.
