O’Hara to vote Dec. 11 on slight tax increase
O’Hara council is expected to vote Dec. 11 on the township’s $18.1 million budget, but it’s unclear whether members will move forward with a slight tax increase as proposed.
Township Manager Julie Jakubec said the property tax rate could increase from 1.725 to 1.9 mills, a bump that would add about $18 a year for every $100,000 a home is assessed.
If approved, the owner of a home assessed at $100,000 would pay $190.
Council met for a special workshop on Nov. 20 but Jakubec said the proposed increase was not decided on.
“It will not be decided until Dec. 11,” she said.
Council will meet at 7 p.m. in the municipal building along Fox Chapel Road.
If the increase goes through, it will be the first time in 18 years residents see a tax increase.
