Per Capita Tax
Tax Collector Kathy Highbaugh presented council with an income and expense summery for collecting the per capita tax. This is a tax that is very time consuming and difficult to collect as it is collected from each resident of the borough who is over the age of 18. Much time and effort is spent keeping track of who has moved in and who has moved out. Council discussed the pros and cons of the tax. Katie Blume made a motion to have Solicitor Miller draw up and advertise an ordinance repealing the per capita tax, seconded by Patty Beckenbaugh. Motion carried.
Katie Blume made a motion to adjourn, seconded by Patty Beckenbaugh. Motion carried.
Meeting adjourned at 7:40 PM.
Denise Immel Secretary/Assistant Treasurer
