No tax increase for 42 consecutive years


The White Township supervisors approved a budget worth $7,480,733 last night, and the for 42nd year in a row, there will be no tax increase.  The spending plan includes what is needed for the $85,000 grant for work onthe Kennedy-King Park on Josephine Avenue. 


In other news from the supervisors' meeting, the boosters for Indiana Area baseball asked for a discount on “turf time” inside the S&T Bank Arena. They voiced their concern at the disparity between what the high school pays for field time, which is a $4,500 flat rate for the year, and what other baseball organizations pay. According to Recreation Manager Ryan Shaffer, that rate comes from the large workload needed to prep and maintain fields, especially during the rainy spring season. Shaffer and said the arena and field budgets are separate, and the turf time rate could not be lowered. The supervisors did not make a final decision on turf time but most backed Shaffer’s position.
