Tax Hike Approved for Schuylkill County


Schuylkill County Commissioners approved the first tax hike for the county in nearly a decade.

It’s part of the preliminary budget commissioners voted for on Wednesday. The average homeowner in the county would have a $60 per year increase in their county taxes.

One commissioner said the tax hike is to deal with growing healthcare, pension plans, adult probation and other costs.

    other costs? Like What???? If you take a GOOD look around you’ll see that Schuylkill county is populated by people living in poverty. Now our taxes are going up? That means more people in poverty. Have they gone over their books and seen how many residents are already behind in their taxes???? So now they’ll be even further behind and the board will be spending phantom money.
