Susquehanna County Commissioners will be making $50,442 a year starting in 2009, according to action taken last week at a special evening meeting of the Board of Commissioners. Until then, the commissioners will have to settle for $47,547 next year and $48,973 in 2008.
The evening session was in keeping with a tradition and also to give county residents an opportunity to be heard on the salaries paid to the commissioners and other elective offices. It turned out to be a sparsely attended and quickly ended meeting.
The Forest City Borough Council introduced its 2007 budget last week that calls for a two mill increase in municipal real estate taxes. The new tax rate will be 15.8 mills, plus one mill that is earmarked for capital improvement projects.
Finance Chairman Paul J. Amadio said the tax increase was inevitable. He said the increase should generate an additional $44,000 in revenue which is slightly above the $42,000 increase in the new budget.
