Harrisville approves local services tax

HARRISVILLE — Borough council unanimously approved a local services tax to go into effect Jan. 1 at a meeting Wednesday, Nov. 29.

The tax would apply to people who work in Harrisville and make over $12,000 a year, and would cost $1 per week, or about $52 a year.

The money would contribute to emergency services, road paving and local projects, council discussed in previous meetings.

In a previous meeting, council vice president Dave Evans said the tax would help alleviate some of the burden from the budget deficit.

The local services tax would bring in about $14,000 for the 2024 tax year, borough clerk Doug Cook shared in a public notice addressed to residents.
