No tax increase for Warwick Twp.
By: GARY P. KLINGER Record Express Correspondent, Staff Writer
Not since 1990 have residents of Warwick Township seen their taxes increase. And they won’t see them go up in 2013 either.
That was the word from Warwick Township Manager Dan Zimmerman last week.
With the township’s current millage rate set at .0274, that means the average home assessed at $200,000 will pay $54 in taxes.
Township supervisors approved a draft of next year’s budget and have made it available for public review prior to a final vote at its Dec. 19 evening meeting. The new budget takes effect Jan. 1.
Included is the completion of the 2017 Impact Study and the hiring of a full-time coordinator for Warwick Emergency Services Alliance (or WESA).
The new WESA coordinator will be a joint effort between Warwick Township, Lititz Borough and Elizabeth Township. According to Zimmerman, the three municipalities are yet working through the details of the new position, including budget and job description.
"All three municipalities are supporting the position," he added. "We are going back to DCED (PA Department of Community and Economic Development) to work out a revised amendment to the charter for WESA. The goal is to have the position filled by late spring of 2013."
The budget also funds the start of phase II of the township’s portion of a regional rails-to-trails project.
It also earmarks over $825,000 for roads as part of the annual road maintenance program. This will also include completion of Highlands Drive, which is joint project with Lititz Borough.
An 18-year-old dump truck is slated for replacement, and the proposed budget establishes a compliance program for the new MS4 storm water management program, set to take effect in the new year.
