2020 proposed budget has average hike of $85 in taxes, fees

Salisbury Township property owners whose properties utilize public water and sewer can expect an average $85 increase in taxes and services in 2020.

The estimated total increase is based on increases in taxes for the Fire Fund and General Fund and pass-along charges in public water and sewer rates increases from Lehigh County Authority.

The Salisbury Township Board of Commissioners voted 4-0, with one commissioner absent, to approve the proposed 2020 budget at the Nov. 14 meeting.

EAC to handle shade tree appeals

Shade tree appeals in Salisbury Township will be handled by the township Environmental Advisory Council.

The change in procedure occurred after a resolution to amend an ordinance was approved by a 4-0 vote, with one commissioner absent, at the Oct. 10 township meeting.

The board of commissioners will no longer be the first township govenning body that will consider shade tree appeals.

Township commissioners have said the appeals hearing, testimony and vote is too time-consuming to take place at either of the two monthly township commissioners’ meetings.
