Aberdeen Township 2011 Budget Approved

Aberdeen Township adopted its annual budget on Tuesday, per APP. The average tax bill related to Township costs is expected to rise about $9 over the year before as a result of a property tax increase from 43.7 cents per $100 of assessed value to 44.1.

Note that this is only part of our overall property tax bill. It doesn't include the cost of running our school system. Our schools budget tends to be about three times the $15 million Township budget, roughly $1.50 per $100 of assessed value. (That's the 2009 figure from the APP; the BOE avoids mentioning the actual tax levy in its annual Powerpoint persuasentations.) So you can just ignore the APP article's reference to how much the average homeowner pays in property taxes in Aberdeen. Don't we wish we were only paying $1,200/year in property taxes?
