The Ridgway Borough Council adopted the 2013 budget without a tax hike during Monday night's regular meeting.
Council unanimously approved the $6 million budget without a tax increase following a public budget meeting held prior to the regular meeting.
The new budget includes a general fund of $1,568,745.
Council member Ralph Dussia made the motion to adopt the budget.
As discussed by council president Nina Stolburg at the November meeting, a .75 mill increase was needed in the general fund. In order to offset the deficit, funds will be transferred from savings accrued from timber sales or Marcellus Shale funds.
