SPRING CREEK TOWNSHIP — Despite the rising cost of health insurance, Spring Creek Township supervisors are expected to approve a 2010 budget that holds the line on taxes.
Supervisors Maxine Hildum, Bill Jackson and Robert August will vote on the proposed $191,064 budget Thursday at 7:30 p.m. at the township building.
“As far as I know, there should be no change, unless they bring it up at the meeting,” township Secretary Gordon Southwick said. “I haven’t heard any complaints, so far.”
If the budget is approved, as expected, property owners in the township would continue to be assessed 11.5 mills, with 1.5 mills designated for the Spring Creek Volunteer Fire Department.
Each mill of tax generates about $9,000 for the township, Southwick said.
This would mark the second consecutive year that the township’s budget would not include a tax increase.
