Lansford Borough council has passed a tentative budget.
It sounds nice, but it is bogus.
Two properties were removed from the no-tax list and are now to be taxed. The value of these properties are around $275,000. Will they be collected? I doubt it.
This year in 2014 to date only around $700,000 was taken in, but next year they expect $900,000 unreal.
By July we will be broke.
On top of that three members of council wanted to raise the sewage transmission rates.
