Clark council will hold the line on taxes if the proposed budget revealed Tuesday night is approved in December.

The preliminary budget of $231,879 does not include any tax increase. If it passes, real estate taxes will remain at 12.67 mills with 1 mill going to the fire department.

The budget is about $8,000 more than last year’s and provides increases for health care costs, electricity bills and a 2 percent raise for the borough’s one full-time and four part-time employees.

The Emergency Management Services fee will remain at $40 and the earned income tax will stay at 1 percent with half going to the borough and half to Sharpsville Area School District.

A mill is $1 for every $1,000 of a property’s assessed 1970 value. At 12.67 mills, a property owner with a home assessed at $30,000 would owe $380. A mill brings about $6,000 to the borough.
