2019 Local Budgets Being Formulated

It’s budget time for local governments as they look at predicting revenue and expenses for the coming year. Montour County Commissioners say they will likely need a modest tax increase to balance budget for 2019...that would the first increase in about 7 years. Meanwhile, Columbia County Commissioners say they don’t believe a tax hike will be necessary for next year. Tax rates won’t be set until final budgets are adopted prior to the end of 2018.
