Pulaski Township taxes will remain the same in 2006.





When the supervisors adopted the township's $872,593 budget in late December, they held the line on taxes.





Property taxes will remain at a total of 1.16 mills and are broken down as follows:





*0.8 mill for the general fund





*0.1 mill for equipment





*0.26 mill for fire tax





The street lighting assessment is 46 cents per foot for developed land and 12 cents per foot for vacant lots.





Township officials continued the 1 percent earned income tax for 2006, the $10 occupational privilege tax for anyone who works in the township and earns $2,000 a year or more, and the $5 per capita tax for each resident 18 or older whose annual income is $3,200 or more.





At its reorganization meeting Jan. 3, Lewis Grell was retained as chairman and Tom Gates was retained as vice chairman.





The third supervisor is Sam Varano. He replaces Dan Abramson who had been a township supervisor for 12 years.





The three supervisors named themselves as road masters, setting wages at $16 per hour.





Attorney Richard Harper was retained as township solicitor and attorney Jonathan Solomon was named zoning hearing board solicitor. He replaces John Hodge, who resigned after being elected judge of the Lawrence County Common Pleas Court.
