No tax hike in Mt. Lebanon’s $31.19 million proposed budget
Mt. Lebanon is starting the budget process for 2015 without a tax increase or much in the way of new programs or spending, after staff released a $31.19 million proposed operating budget.
The budget proposal includes one new public works employee to coordinate work in parks and playgrounds; new vehicles for police, public works and animal control; and increased costs for items such as health insurance and road salt, said Manager Steve Feller. It did not include additional spending for deer control, though $68,000 set aside from this year’s unspent reserves will be carried over.
Commissioners will review the budget proposal, which would keep the property tax rate at 4.51 mills, during workshop meetings at 5:30 p.m. Monday and Tuesday at the municipal building. A public hearing is scheduled for 8 p.m. Nov. 11.
