Budget

Like low taxes and local government that’s sensible and responsible? Then there’s a lot to like about Worcester Township. The proposed 2022 Budget
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…and this rate will stay the same in the coming year. This
means that the owner of a property in Worcester Township that is assessed at $300,000 (about a $640,000 sales price) pays $15 in property tax to the Township. This same owner
pays $1,206.60 in property tax to Montgomery County (4.022 mills), and $9,379.35 in property tax to the Methacton School District (31.2645 mills).

The proposed Budget provides…

  • more than $900,000 in road improvements, to keep our streets 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 has reached the end
    of its useful life.

The Budget proposes a half percent increase in residential and commercial sewer rates in the coming year. For residential customers the sewer rate will increase by about 22 cents
per month.

The 2022 Budget is now available for review at the Township Building during regular business hours or anytime by clicking here.  The Board of Supervisors will consider adoption of the Budget at their monthly Business Meeting on December 15. Any questions about the Budget may contact Finance Director Nicole Quagliariello at (610) 584-1410, or by e-mail at nicoleq@worcestertwp.com.
