The South Whitehall Township millage rate on Real Estate Tax, which is our largest revenue producing source, is 3.31974 mills. This rate includes 2.84975 mills for the Township General Fund and 0.47 mills for the Fire Fund. These rates represent no tax increase.
There are no rate changes for Water and Sewer in the proposed 2020 budget.
Refuse Fund – The Refuse Fund provides the following services to the residents of the Township: weekly curbside trash, recycling, grass(April-Nov) and one bulk item pickup; curbside fall leaf cleanup; and the Yard Waste center at the Municipal Complex. The Township’s current Municipal Waste & Recycling contract which began on 01/01/2014 ends on 12/31/19. During 2019 the Township went through a competitive bid process and received three bids. A three year contract was awarded to the lowest bidder, Advanced Disposal. As we have seen in neighboring communities throughout the Lehigh Valley the price of these services have increased significantly over the last five year. The 2020 Refuse rate is $95 quarterly / $380 annually.
