The 2020/2021 Penn Dot Winter Maintenance Agreement (611 to Delaware Road to River Bridge) is $657.55.  T. Stinnett asked what last year’s amount is.  T. Stinnett found it $649.00, T. Macaluso stated it goes up each year.

Council looked over finances.   T. Stinnett stated when he looked over the financials he noticed the Local Services Tax was lower and he said it is probably due to the empty call center on Durham Road. T. Macaluso said that is exactly why.  T. Macaluso continued to say that the tax income is comparable to last year’s totals at this time even considering what we are all dealing with. Starting this month and next we will be getting earned income taxes in. Then that will show how we are doing during this virus. Real estate taxes are good 86% of budget. T. Stinnett stated Income VS expenses are dead on. T. Macaluso said we are not doing badly.  The rest of Council said the financials look good.



Meeting adjourned at 7:22 pm.

Next Finance meeting will be held August 5, 2020 immediately following Streets/Properties
