Upper Yoder Township’s supervisors adopted a 2015 spending plan that retains current taxes.

The general fund was balanced at $1.65 million, an increase of $37,475 over this year’s budget, in action taken Thursday.

The garbage fee will remain the same as this year: $125 for garbage collection and $20 for the recycling program.

The highway-aid fund, monies received from the state to maintain roads, was listed at $119,473.

Supervisor Scott Hunt said there has not been a tax increase since 2005, and the supervisors even decreased taxes for 2014 by one mill to 12.625 mills.

Taxes will remain at that rate this year, he said.

Both Hunt and Supervisor Chairman Ed Barzeski attribute the constant tax structure to good management by supervisors and department heads and an efficient workforce.
