East Penn supervisors, at a rescheduled Thursday end-of-year meeting, passed a budget with one-half mill increase in taxes to a total of 6.635 mills. The meeting had been scheduled for Dec. 27 but there was no quorum.
The vote to adopt the budget was 4-1 with Randy Pfeiffer voting no.
During public comment Joe Ehritz asked the supervisors to explain why the increase was needed and suggested that selling the social hall at this time would be a good money- saving move since the fire company is outgrowing the portion it uses.
Insurance renewal was approved.
