JOHNSONBURG – The Johnsonburg Borough Council approved the tentative 2012 budget and tax schedule during Monday afternoon's meeting.
Next year's budget is projected as $1,801,811.
According to borough manager Mary Polaski, there will be no tax increase. The budget includes an average three-percent raise to employees and hospitalization is projected at 1.9 percent.
"Other than that everything else pretty much stays the same," Polaski said.
Polaski said the millage for the 2012 tax schedule will remain the same as 2011.
The real estate tax millage is at 21.3 and the occupation tax is at 27.5 with a one-half percent earned income tax. Other taxes include a local services tax of $47, a $5 per capita tax and a one-half realty transfer tax.
In other business, council adopted a resolution agreeing to develop a plan for the U.S. Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration approving to replace streets signs with a higher level of reflectivity.
"We need to maintain our traffic signal retro-reflectivity," Polaski said. "Basically, as we replace signs we will replace signs with a new reflectivity level and they will have to be maintained for up to 12 years."
