Will Your County Taxes Increase in 2015?

Commissioner Mark Hamilton reveals the plan today on Home Page

 

by Sara Vogt - November 19, 2014

Tioga County was established in 1804. Our current population is 42,577. It’s governing body consists of three county commissioners; Erick J. Coolidge, Mark L. Hamilton and Roger C. Bunn. Today, Sara Vogt visits with Mark Hamilton about the responsibilities of the commissioners as they serve our county. He revealed several things that our commissioners do and explained that the county has a brochure available that outlines the 17 departments that the commissioners oversee. The level of their involvement in each department varies.

The brochure, which is available at the courthouse, has many of the telephone numbers that are helpful in reaching the commissioners and the other departments. It also includes a Budget At-A-Glance and details expenditures for 2013 of $32,972,979 and the different categories where the money was spent. Mr. Hamilton also discussed our county taxes and whether or not they will be going up this coming year. Mark also stated clearly that our Tioga County budget is balanced – there is no debt. We are one of the few counties in the country that can make that claim, which is a great heritage to pass on to the children of Tioga County.

The budget for the year of 2015 is on display at the courthouse for any of us who want to see how the money is being spent on our behalf. On today’s feature, Mark also discusses our property assessment, when it changed last and what’s in store for us in 2015.

For more information on our county government you can go to their website here.

Mark Hamilton is now serving his third term as Tioga County Commissioner. During his tenure as commissioner he has had the privilege of being elected by his peers across the state as the President of the County Commissioners Association of Pennsylvania (CCAP). Mark started his political endeavors by serving as Mansfield’s Mayor in 2001 during the 9-11-2001 attack on America.
