Like low taxes and local government that’s sensible and responsible? Then there’s a lot to like about Worcester Township.
The 2021 Budget, adopted by the Board of Supervisors on December 16, includes no new taxes and no tax increases, and 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 $300,000 (the approximate assessment for a house with a market value of $650,000) pays $15 in property tax to the Township.
The 2021 Budget provides:
- more than $900,000 in road improvements, to keep our street in good condition;
- several improvements to Township trails and parks;
- a 5% increase to the Township’s contribution to the Worcester Township Volunteer Fire Department, our community’s all-volunteer emergency service provider;
- a 5% increase to the Township’s contribution to the Norristown Library, our community’s public library; and,
- new Public Works equipment, to replace needed equipment that have reached the end of its useful life.
The Budget proposes a one percent increase in residential and commercial sewer rates in the coming year. For residential customers the sewer rate will increase by about 44 cents per month.
