For the 29th year in a row, the Borough Council of Grove City passed a balanced budget that requires no hike in property taxes! Millage will stay the same at 2.5 mills.
The overall budget increased slightly, primarily due to an increased expenditure in the borough infrastructure. The borough will be increasing its water supply operations in the park and increasing the voltage of the electrical system to keep up with modern demand.
Additionally, the newly refurbished wastewater treatment plant will receive a new employee and the police department will receive a new officer (eliminating the use of part-time officers).
The budget was put together by Borough Manager Vance Oakes and budget committee members Andrea Folkertsma, Michael Coulter, and yours truly.
