Bethlehem Tp Manager Doug Bruce confirmed after last night's Commissioners' meeting that he has proposed a half mill tax hike for next year. A skeleton of a spending plan is available online, and contains no budget message that might explain why a tax increase is necessary. Bruce did indicate that additional material will be uploaded to the Township website this week.
Bruce may propose, but it is Commissioners who dispose. 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.
