The Board of Supervisors is considering the sale of three Township-owned building lots. The building lots are not open space, and the building lots are not along the Zacharias Creek! Click here to get the straight facts about the Meadow Lane building lots.
Like low taxes and local government that’s sensible and responsible? Then there’s a lot to like about Worcester Township.
At its December 19 Business Meeting of Board of Supervisors adopted our community's 2019 Budget. the Budget includes no new taxes and no tax increases, while maintaining the higher-quality services and programs our community enjoys today.
The current Township real estate tax, at 0.05 mills, is the lowest municipal millage rate in Montgomery County. This means that the owner of a property in Worcester Township that is assessed at $400,000 pays $20 in property tax to the Township. This same owner pays $1,539 in property tax to Montgomery County (3.849 mills), and $12,017 in property tax to the Methacton School District (30.0431 mills).
The 2019 Budget funds more than $835,000 in road improvements (to keep roads safe), provides a 5% increase to the Township’s contribution to the Worcester Volunteer Fire Department (our community’s all-volunteer emergency service provider) and replaces important Public Works equipment (that have reached the end of its useful life).
The Budget also includes a 0.5% increase in residential and commercial sewer rates. For residential customers the sewer rate will increase by about $0.23 per month.
