The 2015 Budget and 2015 Real Estate Tax Ordinance was formally approved by Souderton Borough Council on Monday, December 1, 2014. The general purpose tax rate will increase by 1.3% from 4.94 mills to 5.00 mills. The Special Library Tax was increased in 2013 to 0.2475 mills in response to the request of the Library Funding Task Force, and will increase in 2015 to 0.30 mills, which is less than the increase recommended by the Indian Valley Library Task Force Funding Committee. The Special Fire Tax will modestly increase from 0.20 mills to 0.210 mills in 2015 primarily to cover the increased cost of workers compensation insurance. Total Real Estate Tax Rate for all funds for 2015 increased from 5.3875 mills to 5.510 mills, increasing the average total tax bill by $18.37, $9.00 of which will support Borough General Fund activity, $1.50 will cover increased workers compensation insurance for the volunteer fire company and an additional $7.87 will fund the Indian Valley Public Library.
In 2013, Souderton Borough Council conducted a survey of residents on their opinion of utilizing a single trash hauler to provide solid waste collection services and recycling services to our residents and smaller commercial businesses. The survey was distributed to approximately 2,100 accounts with an excellent response rate of 910 responses. In general the residents are satisfied with the current system of private subscriptions; however, there is strong support for switching to a single hauler municipal contract if economically advantageous. Based on this response, Souderton Borough Council has authorized the drafting of contract specifications and bid documents to obtain competitive quotations.
Sealed bids were opened at a public hearing on Monday, May 4, 2015. A copy of the bid tabulation and a copy of the general and detailed specifications are attached to this article for your review. Borough Council will be reviewing the bids and the potential for establishing a municipal trash collection contract to become effective January of 2016. Borough Council has set a public meeting on this topic for Monday, June 22, 2015 beginning at 7:00 pm in the Council Chambers of the Souderton Municipal Building, 31 W. Summit Street, Souderton, Pennsylvania. Based on the bids received, Borough Council is considering a program to provide municipal trash and recycling collection at a cost of $60.00 per quarter for residentail properties. Under this traditional service a 96 gallon tote will be provided for household trash and a 64 gallon tote will be provided for recycling. Collections will be completed weekly on the same day. Residents may also add additional cans and one bulk item each week for collection. As an option, residents may consider signing up for a bag program. This optional service will provide a 64 gallon wheeled tote for curb side collection of recyclable materials each week at a cost of $7.50 per quarter. Residents can also place up to four bags of household trash on the curb each week for collection at a cost of $4.00 per bag. Bags will be available at the Borough Office for purchase. Bulk item pickups will not be available for bag accounts. Borough Council continues to evaluate a muncipal trash program and believes that the vast majority of our residents will see the same and even an expanded level of service at very competitive prices. Borough Council further anticipates that the pricing will remain valid for three years. The program will not affect commercial accounts or apartment complexes that provide trash disposal through dumpster service.
Souderton Community Park
Thanks to many volunteers and borough crews the Souderton Community Park annually recieves a fresh look. Earth Day kicks off a community clean up and the Souderton Community Park is one of the many sites throughout the borough to get a spring pick up and a year long make over. Recently the park benches, tables, shuffleboard, pavilion and band shell were painted. Even though park maintenance is in the plan, Mother Nature usually adds a few items on the 'list of things to do' .
The Souderton Community Park is a gathering place for many activities throughout the seasons. Thousands of guests visit the park each year. Many memories are cherished and celebrated annually, family reunions, birthday parties, picnics and special events. Families enjoy spending the day at the Souderton Community Park and taking advantage of all the amenities the park and the community has to offer. The pavilion in the Souderton Community Park can be reserved by calling the borough office for availability and information.
