At a special meeting held on November 10, 2022, the Mount Joy Township Board of Supervisors proposed a budget for calendar year 2023 of $5,173,970.41. The budget centers on the provision of core Township services including public safety, road and drainage system maintenance, and parks and recreation. The final 2023 budget is anticipated to be adopted at the December 19, 2022 Board of Supervisors meeting.
Mount Joy Township is proposing a total property tax increase of 0.50 mills, raising the municipal millage from 2.74 to 3.24.
- The general revenue rate would increase from 2.04 to 2.34 mills.
- The fire protection tax rate would increase from 0.70 to 0.90 mills.
The proposed 3.24-mill rate equates to $3.24 per $1,000 of taxable property value, or $648.00 in annual municipal real estate tax for a property assessed at $200,000.
