No Tax Increase in Chester County

The Chester County Commissioner's approved a budget with no increased taxes.

Chester County is heading into 2014 with the same taxes it had in 2013.

The County’s Commissioners voted in the 2014 budget on Wednesday, approving a county budget that is free of any tax increases.

“This budget… demonstrates our continuing process of maintaining tight control over expenditures, while seeking new, cost-effeective methods to deliver… the services our residents want,” Commissioner Ryan Costello said in a release.

The county’s budget for 2014 includes $429,821,896 in operating expenses and a capital budget of just under $93 million.

One possible cause for the flat tax rate could be the county’s tax base, which, according to the commissioner’s office, increased in 2013.

The county budget will be posted on Chesco.org in the coming days.
