December 14, 2011

SMETHPORT – Outgoing McKean County Commissioner Judy Church said Tuesday that she won't support a 2012 county budget that calls for a half-mill increase in the property tax rate.
The budget proposed last week calls for raising the county property tax rate from 8.25 mills to 8.75 mills.
"Unfortunately, the budget will require a property tax increase," County Commissioners Joe DeMott and Al Pingie said in a statement that accompanies the proposed budget. The tentative spending plan is on public display at the county courthouse in Smethport.

Under the new program, the treasurer's office will accept "plastic" for virtually every payment such as county property taxes and per capita tax. The office even will accept credit cards for the purchase of dog licenses, fishing licenses and hunting licenses.
In some cases, a "convenience fee" is added to the payment.
