>>No New Tax Increase for Residents in Lehigh County Budget
(Allentown, PA) -- The Lehigh County Board of Commissioners has adopted its 2022 budget and it does not contain a tax increase for property owners. County Executive Phillips Armstrong's budget allocates about 500-million-dollars in spending next year and holds the tax rate at 3.78 mills. Wednesday night's approval also involved four amendments. One amendment increased the Voters Registration Budget by 50-thousand for postage-paid mail-in ballots, another allows the board of elections to consider pay increases for Election Day workers.
