Last night Borough Council passed Conshohocken’s 2010 budget plan. I am pleased to announce that this budget includes a 12.5% cut in the property tax millage while maintaining borough services. While the Borough’s property taxes are only a fraction of our overall property tax bill we recognize that in tough times every dollar counts. Last year, during my first year on Council, we balanced the budget without raising property taxes.
I want to extend a special note of thanks to Council Finance Chair Paul McConnell for his leadership in crafting this year’s budget.
