Bethlehem Township Manager Doug Bruce confirmed at the conclusion of last night's Commissioners' meeting that he is seeking a half mill tax increase next year. A skeleton of next year's spending plan is posted online, but is devoid of any other material, including a budget message explaining why a hike is necessary. He proposes, but it is Commissioners who have the final say.
Budget hearings are scheduled as follows:
Monday, Oct. 22, 2018 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Monday, Oct. 29, 2018 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Saturday, Nov.10, 2018 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
