A proposed tax increase was approved for advertisement at the Jackson Township supervisors meeting on Dec. 4. The increase will bring the tax rate from .132 to .145 on a $150,000 assessment, making the total increase approximately $1.65 a month.

The supervisors approved the maintenance fee of $400 per year for the EMA equipment in connection with the Back Mountain Community Partnership. This is a fee that each municipality will pay for the upkeep of equipment purchased under the Partnership grant.

The board also approved the support of the BMCP in the application for the 2012 Gaming Grant for public safety equipment.

The board authorized the hiring of two part-time police officers and accepted the resignation of part-time officer Josh Evans.

Anyone interested in serving on the Zoning Hearing Board, the Planning Commission board or the Recreation Board is asked to submit a letter of interest to the township no later than noon on Dec. 20. The position terms are set to expire on Dec. 31.

The board approved the township engineer and solicitor to review the Koral and Devonshire subdivisions for final approval by the board of supervisors.

Supervisors will hold a budget meeting at 9 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 21.
