Being a small borough of 3000 residents and providing the services, i.e. fire protection, public works, emergency (medical) and administrative duties, it is very difficult to provide these services with a limited tax base and with maximum tax millage. The county reassessment of the borough could help and needed commercial structures (which is coming) should help in 2020. Expenses keep rising but income doesn't keep up with the increases. We must be very prudent to manage our borough.
