At their October 10 meeting, the Susquehanna Boro Council had heard a presentation from Berkheimer Associates, regarding enacting an Earned Income Tax (EIT). With changes expected some time in the future to the way that school districts receive funding, whether or not to initiate an EIT will be on the ballots this spring. Voters will decide if school districts should enact an EIT to alleviate property taxes, with additional funding to come from gambling revenues, all with the goal of alleviating property taxes. Several municipalities in our county are also looking into initiating an EIT, Susquehanna Boro among them. At their October 24 meeting, it was discussed at length. A sample ordinance had been sent to the boro’s solicitor for review. Pending his findings, council decided that it is worth pursuing.
Bond issue decisions dominated the Mountain View School Board meeting on October 23, although a more pleasant event opened the proceedings. Board President James Zick presented former teacher and principal Mr. Robert Klenk with a plaque commemorating his long and dedicated service to the school and community. Mr. Klenk spoke briefly, thanking the board for the plaque, which will hang in the school lobby, and also thanked them for the supper in his honor held the previous Saturday, sponsored by the Alumni Association. Mr. Klenk noted that he no longer needed to listen to bond issues, which brought laughter from the board and public, and left the meeting after the presentation.
