Coaldale Borough Council on Tuesday approved a 2010 budget that calls for the tax rate to stay the same at 20.54 mills.
That means the owner of a home assessed at $25,000 will pay $513.50 in property tax next year. The spending plans projects $1,495,000 in revenue and $1,420,000 in expenses.
In other matters, Council agreed to buy a new police cruiser, a Crown Victoria, for $32,043.40 and a used backhoe for $19,500. The backhoe purchase was from Medico Industries Construction Equipment, which offered the lowest of four bids.
