No Tax Increase for Upper St. Clair Residents

On Monday night, the Township of Upper St. Clair Board of Commissioners unanimously approved the 2019 budget with no tax increase.

For the 10
th consecutive year, the Township’s real estate tax rate will remain at 3.83 mills and the earned income tax rate will remain at 0.80 percent. The tax rates remain unchanged despite the severe flash flooding Upper St. Clair citizens experienced on June 20, 2018.

“The Township’s response to this disaster was made possible in part by many years of sound, responsible financial management, “ stated Township Manager Matthew R. Serakowski.

“The 2019 budget again reflects the Township’s continued commitment to long-term financial planning which positions us so that the next time we are faced with unanticipated expenses like those resulting from the flash flooding, we can once again respond without hesitation and without disrupting or reducing the quality of services that Township residents expect.”

In 2018, the Township received its 10th consecutive Distinguished Budget Presentation Award from the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA). The 2019 budget document continues to meet the GFOA’s award criteria.
