Like low taxes and local government that’s sensible and responsible? Then there’s a lot to like about Worcester Township. The 2018 Budget includes no new taxes and no tax increases. And the Budget maintains 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 $11,783 in property tax to the Methacton School District (29.4585 mills).
The Budget funds more than $825,000 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 2018 Budget also includes a 1% increase in residential and commercial sewer rates in the coming year. For residential customers the sewer rate will increase by about $0.44 per month.
