SUNBURY — No tax increase for Northumberland County residents next year…Northumberland County Commissioners voted unanimously to give initial approval to the 2022 budget. Final approval will be voted at the December 28 meeting. Commissioner Chairman Sam Schiccatano thanked his fellow commissioners and said working on the $89.3 million budget to assure no tax increase was a team effort.
Schiccatano said a tax increase is unheard of these days, especially with current inflation issues. The commissioners kept this in mind as they talked to county officials and department heads to find ways to keep budget numbers down.
The budget will be available for residents to read beginning today and for twenty days thereafter.
