There's another tax hike looming, but Council keeps spending

The information shown above is from Lancaster Newspapers. According to the article, at the September 12 Columbia Borough Council meeting, Council discussed the possibility of a 31% tax hike in the near future. Council seems reluctant, however, to reduce spending to the point where a tax hike can be avoided.

Last year (December 2018), Council voted unanimously to raise municipal taxes by 1.4 mills, from 6.6 to 8 mills - a 21% increase.
