It doesn't sound like much.
Lehighton Borough Council agreed to increase taxes just one mill this year.
There are other things to consider about the budget, though, which make the cost to taxpayers greater than projected.
The one mill increase comes atop a two-mill hike set only two years ago.
In addition, the borough is adding a local services tax of $52, replacing the $10 occupational privilege tax. This means an additional $42 per year is coming out the pocket of each person who works in the borough.
