Wernersville, PA —
The Tulpehocken Township supervisors on Wednesday approved a motion allowing the township solicitor to draft a local services tax ordinance.
If research determines the tax is permissible, the proposed ordinance will be advertised for enactment at the November meeting. If approved, a $52 yearly tax will be levied on individuals working within the township who earn more than $12,000 annually.
Chairman Gary Deck said the revenue from the tax will go toward emergency medical services, and current funds budgeted for those expenses would be allocated for recreation.
A special meeting will be held Nov. 14 at 5 p.m. to present the 2020 budget.
Supervisor Lester Feick was absent.
