Taxes, budget

WAYNE ─ A preliminary budget was adopted by Wayne Township supervisors during a regular meeting on Monday evening, and it proposes no additional tax burden for township residents.

The balanced budget for 2022, which is set to be officially adopted in December, projects $463,466 in total revenue and the same for total expenses.

If adopted, the budget would see tax rates remain the same for residents in 2022, said Wayne Township Secretary-Treasurer Erin Bisbee, and the millage would also stay the same at 1.24.

“We are proud to say that yet again there is no tax increase for 2022,” Bisbee said, adding that there have been no tax increases since she began working for the township in 2016.

The complete budget, which is available for viewing at the municipal building, 17395 Sciota Road, Corry, is broken down into categories including planning and zoning, personnel administration, public safety and buildings, among others.

Bisbee noted that appointments are preferred for those who would like to review the budget.

Interested parties can call the municipal building at 814-663-1663 to set one up.  

The next meeting of the Wayne Township supervisors is scheduled for Dec. 20. The final budget is expected to be officially adopted at that time.
