Oakland Borough Council took the first step toward 20 years of progress as each council member signed off on the borough’s application to DCED (Department of Community Economic Development) for a plan to borrow money for a two-fold purpose: (1) for the purchase of the borough’s new municipal building, and (2) to refinance the borough’s current debt. If approved by DCED, the package would indebt the borough for $197,000, with a repayment schedule of 20 years, interest at 4% per annum.
During the Thompson Township Supervisors meeting on July 13, 2016, residents debated the proposal of implementing an Earned Income Tax (EIT). At the June meeting one of the residents suggested the Township execute this tax. She stated she has the money taken out of her pay at her workplace because they have this tax, and she would like to see the money come to the Township. The Supervisors said they would advertise this topic to be discussed at the July meeting so people would have the chance to have their say before they made a decision.
