Buffalo Township taxes won’t rise next year

Supervisors on Wednesday night passed a preliminary budget of $2.2 million that will maintain the real estate tax rate at 4.38 mills.

The spending program is about a $33,000 increase from this year’s budget.

The township plans to take out a $200,000 tax anticipation loan that will allow Buffalo to pay expenses until tax revenue starts coming in. The biggest expenditure will be for police wages, which total $425,000 for the five full-time officers and several part-timers.

The whole police budget will be $496,000.

Wages for the public works department will total $220,000 with another $50,000 allotted for snow and ice removal in the event of a harsh winter. The township anticipates $291,500 from the state liquid fuels reimbursement.
