SELINSGROVE — The proposed $4.8 million borough budget for 2020 carries a one-half mill tax increase.
Council member Shane Hendricks said the proposed tax hike would "cover increases in salaries and health care costs."
Next year's tentative spending plan of $4,829,115 is just slightly above the current $4.7 million budget that was approved last year with a 1.5-mill increase.
A final budget adoption vote will be held at 4 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 19.
