For the first time in years a tax decrease is anticipated in Summit Hill.
The borough council gave tentative approval to its 2014 budget Monday night which calls for a one-fourth mill reduction in millage.
Presently, the tax rate is 16.1 mills. The new budget has millage set at 15.85 mills.
Final adoption of the budget is set for 7 p.m. Monday, Dec. 23.
The budget is based on 13.85 mills for general purposes, 1.5 mills for street lighting, and a half-mill for fire allocation.
The fiscal package is balanced at $1,410,305.
