Pennsbury Township is advertising its proposed budget for 2009 and supervisors are scheduled to vote on the matter during their December meeting.Revenues and expenditures are estimated at $1,200,330.

While no tax increases or new taxes were discussed, supervisors did vote earlier in the year to extend the earned income tax.

Supervisors' Chairman Wendell Fenton had said he wanted to have the tax voted on in a referendum, but the supervisors missed the deadline to get the question on the November ballot.

Taxes are expected to remain as they are now, with the EIT at 0.5 percent and a millage rate of 1.15 mills. Amill is a tax of $1 for every $1,000 of assessed property value.

Road crew salaries make up the largest anticipated expense estimated at $164,000, followed closely by expenses for highway subcontractors at $125,000.

On the income side of the ledger, current and prior year taxes are expected to generate $285,000whiletheearned income tax will bring in about $260,000. Liquid fuel money will bring in another $125,000.
