Uncle Irvin: No tax increase for Oxford Borough?

12/13/2016 12:19PM ● By Richard Gaw
Oxford Borough Council is parsing words by stating there is no “tax increase” for 2017.
They forgot about the 30 percent increase in sewage tax they just imposed, along with all the members of the Oxford Area Sewer Authority. They also forgot to tell you that the 30 percent sewage tax affects every property owner in the borough, because every taxpayer has sewage, unlike the townships where sewage is unavailable and not used by most taxpayers.
Borough Council also did not state that any action has been taken to deal with the OASA delinquent loan, for which the borough is liable for 46 percent of $27 million, plus interest.
Happy New Year!
