I am upset,but take note that I am upset also that Dan Moul has the nerve to question the raise to borough employees. Hey Dan refuse your raise. Typical politician runs his mouth,but never does much good for his district. Dan will look out for himself thou.

Wow, A 38% Tax Increase is a bit much in today's economy for most of the people living in Hanover, York County, Pennsylvania. While it's true the Community avoided tax increases over several years, that may have been a mistake. Small tax increases of 3 or 4 percent each year would have avoided the 38% tax increase and reduced the burden on many families living day to day in Hanover today. Nine years without property tax increases doesn't mean anything today. Had we taxed at 3.0% each year for nine years we would have had a 27% tax increase over those nine years and an 11% increase this year. To me that's far better planning then taxing property owners 38% more this year! Yes, I'm retired and I can afford the 38% tax increase, but many property owners cannot in today's economy! Plan ahead - The driving need for the tax increase shown in the paper as a $547,500 rise in health insurance costs, wage increases, and pensions should be reviewed and perhaps wage increases should be frozen at this time as other communities have done. Thank you!!

yes, and poor Dan Moul, owns property in Hanover, and instead of helping the POOR people , he is going to raise the rents on them!!!!!! Live on Social security here, medicare, medigap and now the taxes have gone up, I say freeze pensions and wages till the economy becomes better stabilized.
